    this is a bash on elderly people but I really feel like they are letting people drive way to long. there is no excuse for driving through the front of a fricken building. some 70 year old can function fine and some cant even wipe their own asses. I see quite a few old people blow red lights on a daily basis becuase there too busy gawking at everything around then and not focusing on the road

      The same things apply to younger people who by far have the most accidents and tickets. I see young people (mostly girls) speeding, running stop signs, texting behind the wheel, with D.U.I’s and still driving without insurance or a license and you have guts enough to complain about one lady who had a accident. You are full of crap, live with it.

        True but they should be ticketed as should this lady. Nothing about her age, just the incident, crashing into a building and could have killed someone. You are FULL of it.

          Damn, you sure are stupid for a Iowa Boy. I never said she shouldn’t get a ticket. Although it was on private property so the law has no juristriction there. It is simply a insurance matter. You are sure ignorant. You must be one of the young Iowa Boys. Piss ant.

    Police have said no charges will be filed. Really? If it were me I bet there would be charges. For insurance and liability wouldn’t charges be necessary? Someone could have been hurt or killed. Maybe she shouldn’t be driving.

    I hope this never happens to me, but if it does, I’m going to use the age old excuse, my foot slipped off the brake…

      Probably more like just not paying attention. Or talking when she should be looking and braking.
