A man who got behind the wheel wearing ski boots caused an accident that damaged nine other vehicles in the parking lot of Arapahoe Basin, Colorado this past Sunday. The man later told sheriff’s office deputies he put his car in reverse to back down into the parking lot, but the vehicle became uncontrollable and the brakes wouldn’t work.
He hit eight cars in the parking lot and came to rest against a Toyota Four Runner, which was shoved into the eighth car, according to a report from the sheriff’s office. A deputy tested the cars brakes following the accident and found they were working properly. A woman who was driving one of the struck vehicles said she never saw the car’s brake light come on.
The driver was cited for careless driving.
