...more like out of the car wash and into the river:

Quote

A 64-year-old driver of an SUV mistakenly hit the gas instead of the brake when pulling out of a car wash in Hackensack, New Jersey, and plunged into a river.



No serious injuries, except to the car and the driver’s ego, I would guess. But it makes for quite a video - full story here.

I'm a bit surprised someone didn't install a barrier of sorts, for just such an occasion. But then we wouldn't have had this nice little video to enjoy.

Maybe Evelyn didn't think the "deep clean" option was thorough enough.

What a strange arrangement. Where is there to go over there? Why have a free runway to the river at all? The visibility looks very misleading; even someone new to the carwash driving at parking lot speeds could go over that edge. Carwash traffic patterns are not standardized. Are they expecting a ferry to stop by with a load of cars?

Motorist on runway drives into Tampa Bay

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (AP) - An Elderly motorist confused an airport runway for an interstate highway and drove straight into Tampa Bay, police say.

Firefighters training nearby saw what happened and pulled 87-year-old Jack Comiskey of Chicago and his Winifred, 78, to safety from their rented car in neck-deep water.

"physically, except for being underwater for a few minutes, they were not seriously injured," said police officer B.H. Stockburger. "They were just an elderly couple who got lost"

There seems to be a small booth there. I'll bet that it's a boat ramp that has an easement throught the car wash lot.

In the link by the OP, after the car wash crash, the next video servedshows and amusement ride malfunction that killed at least two people.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Hey, we can't help it if stupid people from Chicago come here and don't know how to drive. How is this Florida's fault?
