AN elderly man was treated by paramedics after reversing his car into a garage in Ledbury yesterday.

The man, in his 80s, demolished a wall and struck a car parked in the garage of the property in Jubilee Close.

The driver, who was in the Peugeot car on his own, was treated for minor injuries at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.

Fire crews were called to the scene just before 6pm.

A structural engineer, gas and electricity companies also attended.

The Hereford Times has been at the scene this morning.

my elderly father did something similar, except it wasn't his garage to demolish. he sent the woman owner of the garage a bouquet of flowers by way of apology. it was a nice gesture, but i guess the owner would've preferred the garage as she'd left it earlier that day. After that, my father concluded it was time to give up driving.
