Elderly woman drives into the middle of a marathon

The hilarious moment an elderly driver found herself in the midst of a marathon has been caught on camera.

The incident happened at the start of the 13th annual running of the Prince Edward Island Marathon in Canada.


The video begins with the runners preparing for the start of the race, but just as the buzzer sounds to send them on their way a Ford Focus pulls into the junction in front of them.

With hundreds of people bearing down on the lost motorist there was nothing anyone could do apart from stand back and watch.

Fortunately, it appears everyone managed to run around the stranded car, ensuring the only thing hurt was probably the driver's pride!
