If she had been braking, I don't think she would be breaking into the emergency room.

rich old people do more damage with high horse-powered suv compared with a poor guy in a 30yo geo metro

My money is that in a few days we hear about some unintended acceleration lawsuit against Mercedes.

Headline of the farking article says "1 killed, 4 injured after SUV crashes into ER at Piedmont Hospital".  That's not an SUV.  Not even close.

Congrats you died to someone who shouldn't be behind the wheel.

One of my EMTs at work is 66, so I'm getting a kick out of this post.

I'm very familiar with this driveway. You wind around a couple of walls before you get to the parking deck entrance and if go too fast this is what happens. It also doesn't help the hospital has been under construction for the last two years.

That's a 'Mall Utility Vehicle'.
Has the ground clearance of a sports car, the cornering of a 4x4 and the cost of operation of an exotic.

It's not a coupe either!  It has four farking doors!  I can see them!

That's because everything in Atlanta is built with duck tape and has to be rebuilt every 18 months.

FTFY. That complex has been under construction for most of my lifetime. My pediatrician was in the now gone Sheffield Building.

70 isn't even old to be driving. He's just an asshole.

5-door, it's a hatchback

It lacks the utility of an SUV, but has the high center of gravity.  Makes sense the driver makes poor decisions.

It seems like these events never result in a charge for the driver.  That may not be correct, but it feels that way.  A couple years ago in this area an elderly driver thought "D" meant "R" and hit a small post office hard enough to cause structural damage and resulted in the facility being closed for a couple months.  No charges filed.

DNRTFA. Was the driver a cop?
 
2020-06-30 8:27:40 PM  
Dnrtfa, was the driver an essential person doing essential things?  If not, the driver should have been welded into their home months ago. And not let out.  Then this wouldn't have happened.

dnrtfa, was the driver an alien that crashed to earth?

They've got the Piedmont Blues.

The Stones named an album after this song.

My daughter's girl scout troop was selling cookies outside a church when we heard a crash & people screaming.   Old guy in a big ol Lincoln smashed through the side of the church.  He went from park to over the parking thing, the sidewalk, & busted a concrete block wall.

Nobody was hurt thankfully but when the guy got out he was easily 90 & could barely walk.  Not because of the accident, he was just that old.  This was in FL & it seemed most old people liked big cars they could barely park.

Maybe add some bollards in front.
