SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Jan. 14, 2015) – That was a close call.

Workers at a California car wash usually see cars plod through in neutral. On Friday, a car zipped through the car wash going 40 mph, reports KTXL.

It turns out a 94-year-old man paid for his car wash and couldn’t take his foot off the pedal. The car eventually crashed into a fence near the car wash’s vacuum area.

The driver refused medical treatment at the scene and walked away from the crash.

The manager at the car wash estimated the damage at $100,000.
