Default Almost didn't make it back from lunch today ...

Thought I would share this one w/ the group ... I went up to the local deli today to get a buttered roll for my soup I brought in for lunch ... I walk past the window and about 10 seconds later what sounded like an explosion was this guy coming through the front window! Not only did he miss me ... more importantly ... he missed my truck too! Wanted to buy a lottery ticket on my way out ... but the store owner was kinda freaking out!

Let me guess what happened.....some older person who for the twenty billionith time mistook the accelerator for the break pedal. Will it take groups of people being killed before this problem goes away.

You are really lucky! Good think you were not standing by that window. Why did the driver run into the store? Do you know if it was an older driver, a drunkard wino, or mechanical failure?

Good thing your truck didn't get hit but I feel bad for the store owner. That really stinks.

Thanks for the pics.

Randy - No kidding ... I'm standing there in the smoke filled store w/ ceiling tiles falling around me thinking to myself ... If this guy hit my truck, after everything I just went through to fix it I'm gonna pull him out of the car and kill him!

Indeepcamo - Its like you were there or something. Exactly what happened. I'd put the fellow in his late 70's early 80's. Never touched the brake at all! If it wasn't for the half brick wall ... he would of gone through to the other side of the store. Had his foot on the gas for a good ten seconds after he crashed through.
