This is the amazing moment a 92-year-old driver smashes into no fewer than nine cars on his way out of a grocery store’s parking lot after getting his foot caught on the gas pedal.
Surveillance footage released by the Mayville Police Department in Wisconsin shows Russell Kerr trying to reverse out of a parking spot before suddenly starting to zip back and forth, striking multiple cars at he went.
Just moments later, another security camera at the Piggly Wiggly shopping center in Mayville, Wisconsin, caught Mr. Kerr plowing into a pick-up truck, before speeding off with debris flying everywhere.
An SUV driver gets out and starts chasing Mr. Kerr in an effort to prevent further damage. Then another man joins him.
Mr. Kerr was eventually stopped and reported to the police.
When questioned, the 92-year-old explained that his foot got caught on the gas pedal of his 2007 Chrysler Pacifica, he panicked and lost control of the wheel.
His vehicle and the pick-up truck he hit were towed from the scene while other drivers were left to file insurance claims. Luckily, no one was injured in last Friday’s incident.

The incident was considered an accident and Mr. Kerr was not charged.
However, his driver’s license will be reviewed by the Department of Motor Vehicles to determine whether he needs to be retested.
