actually I'm still not sure why they're called bollards.

It's an old nautical term. Bollards are those stumpy things on the dock that you tie a ship to. Since parking bollards are essentially the same thing (if for a different purpose) they have the same name.

Also, can someone explain to me how an accident like this happens?

This is a press release and video courtesy of the Sunnyside Police Department

At approximately 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 20th, 2009, Sunnyside Police Officers were dispatched to the Valley View Market at 107 West Lincoln Ave in Sunnyside.

Officers discovered that a 1990 Toyota Camry, driven by Isabel Hernandez, had struck the market. Investigation showed Hernandez had been parked at the market and had backed up at a high rate of speed. As Hernandez was backing up, her passenger was attempting to get into the vehicle, leaving the passenger door open.

The Toyota struck a Ford pickup that was parked next to it, accelerated backwards onto West Lincoln, then backwards into the parking lot of the market. The Toyota struck a parking pole lifting the rear end of the Toyota off of the ground, struck the market, coming to rest on another parking pole.

Surveillance video from the market showed the Toyota narrowly missed striking a small child who was walking between the parking pole and the building. Had the parking pole not been there, the child would have been struck by the Toyota.

Hernandez was found to be driving on a suspended license. She was booked in the Sunnyside Jail for Reckless Driving and Driving While License Suspended 3rd Degree.

So far this is the most information I can find, and its from the description on youtube. It doesn't mention A age but my money is on it being a old fuck who mixed up the gas and the break.

I dunno...for an fuck she sure gets out of the car quickly.

She looks young to me, too. Probably just a ditz.

Time Travel Mishap - 2009-09-24
huh..somehow I never even noticed them getting out of the car. Definitely not old. Guess she was probably just to busy thinking about Oprah or baking cakes.

I like also how the ditzes appear to go about their business and walk into the store like nothing happened

What this video doesn't show you is how many lives bollards have taken.

I saw Rick Sanchez report on this - he repeatedly called it proof of the existence of "guardian angels", and I think he might have been serious.

Every time a parking bollard is installed, an angel gets its wings?

Rick Sanchez always gets guardian angels and civil engineers confused.

And that's why you don't let your kids walk behind you.
