Wilde’s video shows an elderly motorist repeatedly speeding his car into Louisiana stores before speeding off in a panic.
The unidentified 78-year-old man was trying to park for an appointment with Babin Physiotherapy in Kenner on Tuesday when he suddenly sped forward, damaging a pillar. informed the police of the WDSU.
A passer-by then filmed him jumping a curb, turning and backing backwards straight into the adjacent optical store.
“Looks like a bomb went off there, but it was actually a small compact car that destroyed the place,” shopkeeper Robert Boover told the outlet amid the destruction.
Footage showed the badly damaged white sedan speeding away, the front bumper missing and the rear barely holding on.
“Obviously he was panicking so it would have been nice if he’d stayed, but Kenner’s police caught him,” Boover said. “I think he just panicked.”
Miraculously, no one was injured in the incident.
Police said the driver may have suffered a medical incident because he was disoriented and unable to answer their questions.
No charges have been filed and the accident is still under investigation.
