Man accidentally backs car into wife

August 30, 2007

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C.---A 70-year-old driver accidentally struck his 65-year-old wife tonight in the parking lot of the North Augusta Food Lion.

The man was backing up his vehicle so his wife could get in the car from her motorized cart when he pressed the gas instead of the brake.

Both were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

    wait till you get older ,that is if you are blessed to get older.You will have a different perspective.Poor reflexes are not just limited to the older drivers.The majority of the accidents are not caused by the older drivers. Oh,by the way,who is WE?,the younger drivers? You should spell the word THEIR not THERE. When a non senior backs over a person or a child,no one mentions testing their. reflexes or taking their driver's licenses

    i also belevie that the elder people sould have to take a test to see if there reflexs are good as well as a eye test to see if they can see good. and if they choose not to take the test they need to get there drivers license taken away.Just as a young person can get in an accident an older person can.

    TO THE PEOPLE THAT THINK OLDER DRIVERS SHOULD NOT DRIVE. HOW ARE WE SUPOSE TO GET OUR BUSINESS DONE. SOME PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE TO CARE FOR THE OLDER PEOPLE. IF A POLL WAS TAKEN I WONDER HOW MANY STORE WOULD PAY EXTRA HELP JUST TO HELP PEOPLE GET TOO AND FROM THEIR CARS SAFELY. REFLEX HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. EVERYBODY HAS ACCIDENTS HOPE THIS COUPLE ARE OK AND GOD BLESS YOU

    I REALLY THINK THERE COMES A TIME THE OLDER DRIVERS SHOULD HAVE TO TAKE A ROAD TEST. TO SEE IF THEY STILL HAVE GOOD REFLEX. IF NOT THEN WE SHOULD TAKE THERE LICENSE. I SEE SO MANY ACCIDENTS THAT COULD BE PREVENTED. NOT THAT YOUNGER PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THERE SHARE OF ACCIDENTS.
