On Friday afternoon, 92-year-old Russell Kerr panicked in a Mayville, Wisconsin, parking lot.
As he attempted to pull out of his parking spot, his foot got stuck on the accelerator. He quickly lost control of his minivan.
Within a minute, his vehicle had struck ten others.
Fortunately, an off-duty firefighter was able to help Kerr stop his out-of-control Chrysler Pacifica.
A surveillance video of the bizarre accident is now going viral.
"I can tell you in 23 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill told WISN.
Remarkably, no one was hurt. Police are considering the incident an accident, not a medical emergency. They didn’t cite Kerr because there didn’t appear to be any criminal intent.
“When you look at the video, the first thought would be it’s a road-rage event or a guy trying to elude police,” MacNeill told the Daily News. “The fact of the matter is the guy kind of panicked and lost control of his vehicle.”
