News Outtake: They’re Selling Vintage Lincolns at Safeway? It’s Not Exactly Fresh Produce

This photo greeted me this morning when I went to check the local news at the Register-Guard’s website. Are they selling vintage Lincolns at Safeway now?

Obviously not. But someone drove their Lincoln pretty far into the Junction City Safeway, all the way to the fresh produce, and they picked up some flowers along the way.

Well, from the vintage of the Lincoln and the nature of the “event”, it wasn’t exactly surprising to read that the driver, Dale Stone, is 88. The Junction City Police determined that it was an accident, and no charges were filed. In other words, another case of unintended acceleration pedal misapplication.
