A very close call was caught on camera a local car wash.

“That’s a whole new level of Quick Quack,” Mitch Shiveley, Site Manager of Quick Quack Car Wash on Bicentennial Circle said.

Friday, a 94 year-old man paid for this wash, then suddenly blasted through to the wash area at 40 miles per hour, taking workers by surprise.

Cars are usually in neural when they enter the wash, and get pulled in through a conveyor system, until they get pushed out to the vacuum area. But this car crashed straight into the vacuums.

No one was injured, but employees said it was close.

“Another lady who was out vacuuming her car actually pulled out about 5 seconds before impact,” Shiveley said.

Shiveley also said the elderly man could not take is foot off the pedal for some reason. He denied medical treatment, and walked away from the scene.

The damages amount to almost $100,000, but as of Monday at noon, most of it has been fixed.

“Stuff can be fixed. There is insurance for stuff like that, people are the most important thing,” said Shiveley, relieved.
