Ridgewood NJ, The driver of a Lexus sedan wound up on the wrong side of a chain link fence on Monday afternoon while attempting to pull into a parking space in the rear of a medical office building located at 505 Goffle Road, Ridgewood.  Ridgewood Police Department officers removed both uninjured occupants of the vehicle and safely escorted them away from an active railroad line.  Ridgewood Fire Department personnel assisted in the removal of a portion of the fence to facilitate recovery of the Lexus.  It is believed the driver may have mistaken the accelerator pedal for the brake pedal.  A flatbed tow truck removed the car from the scene.

    Lightning detector went off on Sat morning and all 3 games continued…..!!

  4. This could be the poster for distracted driving.

  5. Look at the photos folks. This is obviously an older couple. While I wasn’t in the car with them, I also having seen too many members of the senior set driving while on the phone. It’s not likely he was pulling into a parking space and chatting while she was sitting in the seat next to him doing nothing. More likely he confused the gas and brake and should no longer have a license.

    I believe the woman was driving not the man.

  7. #6 why and what’s your point? Okay, so she’s driving and he’s sitting in the passenger seat.

  8. Why all the stereotyping about age and guessing about cellphone use? We do not know what happened and it is not good to spread rumors.
