A man who is literally one century old hit 11 people with his car when he mistakenly backed up onto a sidewalk near a school. His driving-while-old scorecard stat breakdown: nine kids, two adults, and one unlikely excuse about his brakes failing.

Fortunately Preston Carter, of Los Angeles, failed to kill with his powder blue Cadillac. Everyone will survive. But hopefully Carter's license will be deaded.

Police captain George Rodriguez pointed out sagely, "'I think it was a miscalculation on his part. The gentleman is elderly."
