Normally, we’d be the first ones to chastise the driver of this Honda Accord for this could-have-avoided accident. But since the driver is pretty high up on his years, we’re going to excuse it to a case of mistakenly pushing the accelerator pedal as he was backing in to a parking space. Instead of slowing down and braking the Accord, the old man accidentally pushed the accelerator and the car shot up and backed into a billboard.

Needless to say, the Accord was caught in a pretty precarious position. Fortunately, the man wasn’t seriously injured from his unexpected thrill ride and last we heard, he chalked it up to just a bad case of pushing the wrong pedal.

So you’re safe for now, Honda. No recalls are coming – at least not yet.

Good thing that the safety pipe didn’t penetrated on the Accords Chassis and off the flooring of the car.

What the hell happened here? I think He forgot to put this shift knob on D and he’s stuck on R leaving it running backwards.
