I think the old lady was trying to force some renovations at the place... Schneider Manor looked like crap, and it still does.

Maybe Lindsay Lohan was celebrating Christmas in the area and driving Sak around all day, and then this happened. Not a surprise at all

Lindsay Lohan doesn't drive a car that nice. It was already established that it was an old lady, and Schneider Manor is full of them.

Exactly. Throw her in jail and make her pay the price for her foolishness.

A friend of mine worked at Plainfield Lumber when a confused little old thing mistook the gas for the brake, and crashed through the front of that store. He was NOT drunk, or on medications. You could use a different look on life, there, MADD. Not everyone who gets into an accident is driving drunk.

The same thing happened at a dollar store on Alpine, only the old lady hit my younger sister when she went through the store front.

Younger sister is fine and my parents let her stop volunteering at the old folks home. She now works with kids. She still can't sit by older people in church.

Every example of this that I've read so far includes old people...I say it's time to take away their licenses if they don't know the difference between the brake and the accelerator...that would be the logical thing...

Older folks don't need their licenses taken away, they just need to move to Florida. Hey, maybe I should join them!!!

SHE WAS PROBABLY DRUNK. If she wasn't drunk, then how come the family would let someone with diminished capacity drive? unless they are ALL drunks.
