Elderly man drives car into hospital reception to visit his wife

‘A confused 80-year-old man drove his car into a hospital reception where he told shocked staff “I’ve come to visit my wife.”

Staff dived for cover as the elderly man drove his Suzuki Ignis into the day surgery unit of Eastbourne District General Hospital on May 25th.

The wheels on his blue hatchback continued spinning on the carpet, filling the day surgery unit with smoke, until a member of staff switched off the ignition. [..]

Sussex Police said no charges would be laid but the man has surrendered his licence and won’t be driving again.’
