March 1, 2014 15:22 pm · 40 comments




A vehicle went between two trees and hit two other vehicles in the Countrywood Shopping Center on Treat & Bancroft in Walnut Creek on Saturday.

It is unknown why the driver did that with the vehicle. No life-threatening injuries were reported as a result of the crash.

Thanks to Jodi for the top two pictures and thanks to Steve Puma for the bottom one!

Looks like there was plenty of other parking available.

“It was unknown why the driver did that with the vehicle.” I’m better off not knowing. Some people are better drivers than others.

Thankfully, no life-threatening injuries.

Something came up.

I’m convinced everyone is on dope!

I’ll bet it was an elderly person who thought it was in reverse instead of drive.

@Mr. Hand March 1, 2014 at 3:46 PM

Sounds more like a senior citizen to me.

Here’s a tip, for all of you drivers at home: “R” means reverse

They were just REALLY excited about hitting the Black Bear Diner

People who grew up in the 60’s and never did drugs. Which means you hung out with all the right people or all the wrong people, however you want to look at it.

This is not the time to be experimenting with ACID. Trust me on this one….

C’mon, people! Are we going to bash the elderly this soon?

Silva March 1, 2014 at 4:07 PM

@Mr. Hand #4, you the Mr. Hand who taught school?

@Dorothy hahahahaha, another good one!

“It is unknown why the driver did that with the vehicle.”
Maybe she was unable to locate the nearest fire hydrant?

Probably March 1, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Probably just chasing a fire hydrant that got away.

Clayanon March 1, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Or he?

NVgatr March 1, 2014 at 4:50 PM

Well at least no fire hydrants were harmed in this incident!

On their way to CVS to buy more precription drugs?

Time to hand over the key’s

Cat Wrangler March 1, 2014 at 6:08 PM

Did the driver loose consciousness? Hope he/she is OK and nobody injured.

Looks like an old man’s Cadillac.

Janie’s got a gun….

anon March 1, 2014 at 8:08 PM

Blame the GPS

Monica March 1, 2014 at 9:28 PM

Despite the comedy (there’s enough already) this could be a medical issue, etc.

I hope he or she is okay….

Cadillac. Built by Government Motors who is recalling 1.3 million vehicles due to faulty ignition switches which have caused at least 13 deaths.

bluebird March 1, 2014 at 9:34 PM

Hold on Mabel, I know a short cut.

Cat Wrangler March 1, 2014 at 10:04 PM

Maybe he was legally reading the map on his cell phone and didnKt see the tree or +ther cars in his way.

@Cat Wrangler– awesome comment, cant stop laughing

Just saying March 2, 2014 at 4:16 AM

“dang, I parked here cause I didn’t want any door dings!”

Kaiser Sosa March 2, 2014 at 8:43 AM

No doubt a tech-dependant fifty something
just following turn directions from his GPS.

Atticus Thraxx March 2, 2014 at 9:22 AM

So if you average them out I figure each driver 65 y/o and older is on three prescriptions taken daily. The question is how many of those bottles warn against driving or operating heavy equipment? We have a silent killer roaming the streets and roads of America, some one call MSNBC! It’s an epidemic! Get Anderson Cooper on the case.

Shely March 2, 2014 at 11:37 AM

Do we yet know why somebody did this to perfetly innocent trees and vehicles? I personally take meds so that this DOESN’T happen!

Rusty March 2, 2014 at 12:38 PM

Wanted to park in the shade??

warbirds45 March 2, 2014 at 1:41 PM

Does the Cadillac series come with depends?

The fireman said ,” it looks like the viagra worked on his right leg “!

Looks like just another tree hugger, probably having flashbacks from their Berkeley days.
