While many people imagine living long and full lives, not many look forward to the day of hitting 100 years old, and having the mental capacity to handle a motor vehicle. Preston Carter is 100 years of age, and believes that he was fully able to control his car, the question that is being asked however, is how did he hit an alleged 14 different people? News sources showed interviews with family members who explained that they had been trying to get their dad off the road for at least a year now, and he refused to listen.
Just yesterday in Los Angeles the police report that he was backed his large car into a group of adults and children who were traveling from their elementary school in the neighborhood. Though 14 were injured, and 2 were hospitalized, there were no serious injuries. At this time the investigators have a few ideas as to what happened, and possibly they believe it was his brakes that failed him, which resulted in his backing up into the group of people. They are investigating this because the elderly man claims that his car failed him, and the police are investigating those ideas further.
In the meantime, the authorities have permanently taken away his driver's license, and he will be passing his car on to another member of the family. This family is very grateful that no one was seriously injured in this accident or was killed, and at this time the police are choosing to believe the best about this old man because his record is practically spotless. In the event of a car accident, there are some freak accidents such as this case with the 100 year old man, in which thankfully no one was hurt.
