Video: elderly man hits 9 cars in Piggly Wiggly parking lot

MAYVILLE, WI (WTNH)– An elderly Wisconsin man was caught on camera accidentally hitting nine cars in under a minute in a Piggly Wiggly parking lot.

Police say 92-year-old Russell Kerr panicked after his foot got stuck on the accelerator and he lost control of his car at the Piggly Wiggly in Mayville Wisconsin on Friday evening.

“I can tell you in 23 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill told an ABC affiliate.

Kerr struck nine cars in the parking lot, two of which were occupied.

“What are you going to do? There isn’t much you can say. It just happens. I was just glad no one got hurt,”  said Donald Gourlie to WISN, whose car was hit in the accident.

The report of the accident is being sent to the DMV which will determine if Kerr needs to be retested for his driver’s license. Kerr will not be charged in the accident.
