Buffy you sound like an idiot. Someone crashes into a business that knocks an elderly woman to the ground and you don't think she should be checked out? And if she has injuries you don't think the responsible person should be financially responsible? Get real.....I guess the driver should have been more careful or should have stayed home.

Private property accidents usually don't get citations.

Hey Buffy, one of the first things they ask you at the hospital is if another party is at fault. If you answer yes, then your insurance company will not cover the related charges. Not everyone who seeks to recover their losses is "suing" for damages beyond the actual cost. Why should this woman pay for someone else's actions? She does indeed have the right to find out if she was injured. The driver, who is required to carry insurance, needs to cover her expenses. "Sue" is not a bad word. This is why we have insurance.

Sigh. Another misleading headline, unless at the time of putting this paper to bed someone actually called the hospital to find out if she was indeed injured. Yes she fell off her chair, but everything that hurts us does not cause injury. Did she break a hip or arm??? Did she even have a bruise??? Did anyone from this paper even inquire about her, or are they qualified to act as medical personal who are able to magically determine the degree of harm via reporter??? Sheesh.

I'm pleasantly surprised the confused driver wasn't charged in this era of uber-zealous policing in Wheeling...I wonder if the officer will be charged for obstructing. Gotta justify NRJ.

This despite warning from law enforcement to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary. A trip to Bob Evans? Necessary?

Ahhh, typical 26003. Elderly driver crashes into building hurts elderly patron.

In Southern California it is "Illegal alien fleeing police crashes into building injures 16 year old texting on cell phone!'

Why would the driver get a citation? Did you not read that he thought he was in neutral and was using his brake! Never mind he was in drive and hitting the gas!

It seems we read so often of this very same thing…involving elderly drivers. Need a law that forces people in this type of accident to take the entire drivers test and eyesight and awareness.

Buffy what is the deal, anytime any person has a traumatic event they should get checked out it is common sense not an attempt at a windfall.
