Sunday Jigsaw Puzzle - Oops!

This photo plus a brief story ran in Friday's Tulsa World.
It seems that the driver of this late model Mercedes had trouble parking in the seventh floor of a downtown Tulsa bank parking garage. Police said the car was in reverse on the other side of the parking garage when the driver's foot got stuck on the gas pedal. He wasn't able to stop before the car crashed through the wall. For those who may have jumped to the wrong conclusion, the driver was a man, not a woman. This photo ran in news papers all over the world.

19.31 - that was enjoyable. On seeing the picture and story in my morning paper I have to confess I thought, thank heavens it was a man driving rather than a woman!

I agree with Anne; I was also very pleased IT WAS A MAN, not a woman doing it!
We saw the photo in the newspapers here in Scandinavia, and we saw it on the news....
"It was an elderly man who had borrowed the car" we were told. Anyway, it was good that no people were seriously injured.

Oh goodness. And I thought it was just one of those attention-getting things. I sure hope the man wasn't hurt.

I imagine after blasting through a brick wall the car suffered significant damage although it would be hard to assess that from the angle of the photo. There was significant damage from debris to cars parked on the street below.
