In a nutshell, his foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator. He hit the car in front of him a couple times and as they turned away from him he hit the SUV in front of that car, hooked a hard left, flew a solid 5 feet after hitting the curb, knicked the tree, took out a railroad tie wall approx 2 ft tall with the fence shortly after and slightly kissed the garage of the house. The guy was 62 and hadicapped. I really feel bad for him cuz he just panicked. His response of "ohhh, look at the mess I made" when we got his door opened made me laugh but feel so sorry at the same time. He was pretty shook up but I'm just glad everyone was ok

What's wrong with 10k on a car with 100k on it?
It really depends on the car, the value, the resale, maintenance records, clean title/history, etc. Lots of cars that were worth $40k new are worth $10k with 100k miles on them and drive like new...
