A 67-year-old man crashed his car through the 7th floor wall of parking garage in Downtown Tulsa Wednesday.
Around 2 p.m., Mr. Magoo started his Mercedes, shifted to reverse and drove backwards until passersby could see the tail end of the car sticking out from the wall.
The driver claimed his foot got stuck under the gas pedal, which would make sense if pulling the pedal up made cars accelerate. I tried that same excuse when I ran over my grandfather. No one bought it.
Good job Magoo. What a way to show that seniors are safe drivers.
This crash makes a good case that seniors need annual driving tests, but I disagree. I’m not concerned about senior drivers. I find the occasional wall-crash less irritating than the jackass who won’t let me on the highway. I want the world to be like Halo, a world that when I’m annoyed at a bad driver, I can shoot my rocket launcher and destroy them.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, although when this story aired on Live with Regis and Kelly, Magoo “died a little on the inside.”
