 Police are still investigating the crash.

No need to investigate, he mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal, like all old people who drive into buildings/people do.

"Now which one makes the car stop again? I've been driving for 65 years, but I forget".
"We're taking your license away"
"AGE DISCRIMINATION! I'LL SUE! Now where's my carrot?"

And they're closing all the factories down.

"All we hear is boom, and glass flies everywhere. It was like a movie, like an action movie. You see this, it was like an action movie. It was really crazy," said Mitch Barne.

I wonder if the scene was like something from the cinema? Perhaps an action movie?

So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time.   Now, to take the ferry cost a nickle.  In those days, nickles had pictures of bumblebees on them.  Give me five bees for a quarter you would say.

I used to be with "it".  Then they changed what it was, and now what I'm with isn't it.  And what's it seems weird and scary to me.

I'm old, GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE!!!

driver was taken to a DUI center in handcuffs for processing immediately after the accident.

80 years old and hammered  after happy hour. You know Boston Market has RIBS now.

I was expecting this in the article,  not a DUI arrest.

Usually the "I'm old and pressed the wrong pedal" is a get out of jail free card for some reason.

I'm an old man. I'm confused!

Do they put some kind of old-person-crack in Boston Market's food? My grandad was nuts for that shiat, he probably would've driven right up to the counter a few times, if he could've found the keys.

But something happened on the way to that place
They threw a rotisserie chicken in our faaaaaaaa a a ace ...ohwhoa

I've driven 2.5 hours, one way, just for Boston Market.  I'm 29.

Being an 80 year-old driver is bad enough but drunk too?  They really need to take his license away.

I appreciate all the Allentown references, but what sucks is when you have to introduce yourself, and you have to SAY you're from (or originally from, in my case) Allentown.

Everyone starts either 1.) Singing that song, usually poorly, or 2.) I get the question "You mean like the Billy Joel song?"

I doubt he'll be convicted, because it's hard to keep a good man down.  But he won't be getting up today.

I'm also sure that we'll see some copycat incidents, because every child has a pretty good shot to get at least as far as their old man got.

This also happens when you're telling people you know that you've recently moved to the area.

"What's an Emmaus?"
"It's near Allent-"

31, I really liked that place when I was younger then they closed the one near me and I went like 8 years without it. But I had some recently and was really underwhelmed. I don't know if they changed or me.

It was--that's why I left!

Wait... Allentown is a real place?? I always thought it was just a fictional metaphor for the Midwest. Holy shiat... A Boston Market in Allentown. Sounds horrific.

Boston Market used to be better. Food is still good but raising their prices at the same time really cutting down on their portion sizes made me stop going. Stupid jerks.

Billy Joel made it sound bleak but its actually pretty nice in that area now. Allentown has a pretty Sands casino nearby in Bethlehem. Phillies AAA team and Flyers AHL team in the area. Couple of nearby college campuses. Mid way between Philadelphia and New York.

Meant to say pretty nice casino, not that the casino is pretty.

Yeah, even the ghetto parts aren't very ghetto compared to Philadelphia.

Well we're crashing here in Allentown
And we're knocking the pedestrians down
I can barely see above the dash
In my depends
I've got a rash
And we're crashing here in Allentown

As someone who just moved to Emmaus and almost went to that Boston Market for dinner last night, I'm getting a kick, etc.

Imagine telling them you're from Catasauqua. At least Emmaus is easy to spell (unless it's on a traffic sign).
