Bumper Car Granny

Granny can't driveI was reading News24 this morning and came across quite an entertaining article, I had a little chuckle.

Ouma Erika van Zijl, a 71 year old woman crashed her car into no fewer than nine others at Rand Park Ridge yesterday.

“I came out of the Lifestyle Nursery after I’d been shopping and saw the woman driving slowly into a parking bay in front of the nursery’s main entrance.

“It looked like she wanted to park, but suddenly she put the car into reverse and raced backwards at a helluva speed.

Spun the wheels

“She smashed into a bakkie and a Renault,” said Swanepoel.

“Then she put her car in first gear and drove forward at such speed that she spun the wheels.

“Then she hit a Toyota, but just carried on accelerating and pushed the car until it came to a halt against another car, a Mini Cooper.

“She put the car into reverse gear again and smashed simultaneously into a Pajero and an Opel Corsa.

“A security guard at the Lifestyle Nursery eventually turned up and pulled her car keys out of the ignition,” said Swanepoel.

Soon after the accident, the elderly woman was taken by ambulance to a clinic in Johannesburg.

Poor lil lady, hope she is ok. Maybe she should contemplate coming out of retirement and opening a bumper car pavilion.
