Just had to share

Two days ago, there was some excitement at my office. I've only seen this in the news, but I got to witness this first hand.
Evidently this poor woman had a diabetic seizure and lost control of her car. She is doing fine, thank goodness. It's just amazing the path her car took !

Take a look at the path her car took - see the two bushes and the tire tracks? The entrance to the shopping plaza is on the left of the poll.

She manages to go across the entire parking lot without hitting pedestrians or cars...just a straight B-line to the jewelry store! She hits the concrete block and the car goes airborne...take a look past the concrete block..the bushes are untouched!

And from this angle, more amazingly...her car manages to go between the wooden posts, supporting the second level of the store!

One day a great chuckle over this!

    Glad to see this didn't turn out worse than it did, scary stuff.

    Wow- looks like she "threaded the needle" between the sign & lamppost and then the columns at the building. Scary.

    Great pictures silver. I'm happy to hear that she's ok. I did a similar thing (but without a seizure). I was pulling into a parking space and instead of hitting the break...I hit the gas. I went over the concrete curb, across a patch of grass and onto a sidewalk. This happened at a medical building. OMG, I could have killed someone.

    Still can't believe I did it. A security guard came running out to see if I was OK. All I was concerned about was the grass I tore up. He said..."the grounds people will fix it, don't worry."

    I can laugh about it now, but then...not so much!
