An elderly driver accidentally drove into this car while trying to back out of his parking spot in Bay Terrace

An elderly man smashed into two parked cars outside of a Bay Terrace poll site Tuesday while he was trying to drive out of a parking spot, witnesses said.

The man, who declined to give his name or age, said he had just voted at P.S. 169 at around noon when the collision occurred.

Witnesses said the driver rammed into the car in front of him and behind him multiple times. Nobody was in either car and the driver was not injured.

 “I heard the first smash and came over,” said Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr., who was at the school to support his brother, City Council candidate Paul Vallone.

“He just kept on going backwards and forward. He must have done it three or four times,” Vallone Jr. said. “I kept yelling, ‘Stop the car,’ but he sped away on the other side of the street.”

The man soon returned to the scene, according to a poll worker. Police arrived but did not charge him with a crime.
