Car driven by amputee crashes into Prescott tavern

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Prescott police say a car driven by a man who recently
had a leg amputated crashed into the front wall of a tavern.

Two employees were the only people inside the business when the accident
occurred Wednesday morning, and no injuries were reported.

Police Sgt. Nathan Barton told The Daily Courier that
the 66-year-old driver from Prescott Valley had his right leg amputated and
accidentally pushed the wrong pedal with his left foot.

The car accelerated through a parking lot outside before hitting Donna’s Hut

According to Barto, says the officer at the scene found no signs of impairment.

Barto said police did not cite the driver for any infractions but that the
driver will have to be re-evaluated for his ability to drive.
