MINOOKA, IL — An employee at the Dolphin Car Wash had gotten into a car that had just gone through the tunnel and shifted it into the drive position when it “lurched” forward and struck another vehicle that was waiting to be dried, the Morris Daily Herald reported.

The Jan. 12 article said Jacob J. Meyerhoff, 19, the employee involved in the accident, said the there was an “automatic shifter on the steering wheel” and said he did not have his foot on the brake or gas pedal.

The car that was hit ended up hitting another parked car with the car’s owner inside. The car owner complained of lower back pain after the incident, but refused medical treatments.

All three cars were damaged in the incident.
