It happened last Thursday, April 5 in Colchester (Essex) and it was echoed by media such as BBC News and the Telegraph , after the photos were published on Twitter by Colin Shead , sergeant of the police of Essex County traffic.
“A 73-year-old man has been denounced for” reckless driving “on Crouch Street (Colchester) early this afternoon, fortunately, neither the driver nor others were injured, the driver will be offered a driving course,” Colin tweeted via the aforementioned social network.
Although the BBC claims that they are investigating the causes of the event, it is likely that the 73-year-old driver , owner of this Porsche 911 Targa 4S , confused the brake pedal with the accelerator . Remember that this German convertible, which we had the opportunity to test a little more than a year ago, accelerates from standstill to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds, so if you are in a public parking with the front a few centimeters from a wall, this may be the result.
The Porsche 911 Targa 4S crashed into the brick wall, destroying it, to end upright at the entrance to an underground passage. Fortunately, no pedestrians were driving around at the time of the accident. In fact, it is quite a luck that no one was hurt, which includes the veteran driver.
