Elderly lady smashes into car wash and walks away
The out of control Peugeot 106 hit the frame of the car wash with such force that it sent the metal construction and heavy brushes crashing on top of the car, smashing the windscreen, buckling the bumper and almost crushing the B-pillar.
Amazingly, the old lady managed to stumble away from the wreckage with little more than a few scrapes and a very bruised ego.
A Sainsbury's spokesperson told the Daily Mail: "We're delighted that the customer was unharmed and in good spirits after the accident.
"Our car wash will remain closed while we make repairs and we hope to see the customer in store again soon."
The Coventry Telegraph reported that the incident at the Dunchurch Road store will cost the company thousands of pounds to repair but staff are happy that no one was injured in the incident.
The Daily Mail added that on Tuesday, one worker at the store, who did not wish to be named, said:
"She was quite jovial about it - and joked to staff that she thought it was the way out.
"She said "my grandchildren won't let me live this down".
"She took it all in her stride really, she seemed a really sweet old dear."
