Caught on Video-- Elderly Man Confuses Brake and Gas Pedal, Goes Barreling Through Car Wash

Car barely misses a worker who was trying to tell him to slow down

California driver endured what could be the quickest ever car wash after accidentally slamming his foot down on his gas pedal and blasting through an automated machine.

Dramatic surveillance footage shows what looks like a white Oldsmobile speeding towards the wash area at Quick Quack Car Wash in Sacramento on Friday.

But instead of coming to a stop so the vehicle could be soaped, it zooms straight through.

It clips cleaning apparatus and narrowly avoids hitting a startled employee, before coming out of the wash's other side.
