Driver parks wildly at Wal-Mart in Avon

AVON, Colorado ” A man hit two cars instead of parking his own, which was his intention, police in Avon, Colorado said.

While the 21-year-old was pulling into an empty spot at Wal-Mart, he told police he accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

His foot pedal faux pas resulted in driving up and over a median, hitting and uprooting an evergreen tree and bumping into two cars in the opposite spaces. One had a damaged bumper and the other was hit so hard by the Jeep that it changed the direction it was facing in the lot, the report said.

The driver was summonsed with careless driving and, even though the cars were damaged, the owners were able to drive home.
