A Wisconsin Piggly Wiggly’s parking lot saw more activity than usual Friday afternoon when a 92-year-old man accidentally crashed into 9 different cars when trying to pull out of a parking spot.

“I can tell you in 23 years of law enforcement, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill told a local ABC affiliate.

While MacNeill first thought the incident — caught on surveillance video — might have been an act of road rage, he soon learned that driver Russell Kerr was acting out of panic rather than anger when his foot got stuck on the accelerator.

He hit seven empty and two occupied cars in under sixty seconds.

According to ABC, Kerr won’t be cited.
