West Point, Ca — An 84-year-old West Point man went for an unfortunate ride Wednesday morning after errantly stepping on the gas pedal instead of the brake while at the West Point Post Office.
According the CHP, Harold Sammons accelerated backwards approximately 250 ft., and sideswiped a nearby building. The vehicle then continued an additional 100 ft. and crashed into an overhead porch/deck.
The 2007 Chevy came to an abrupt stop as the roof of the structure fell on top of the vehicle. No injuries reported. The accident occurred at 11:15am.
