Years back my Dad did something eerily similar.
In 86 he bought a new f150, when it came off the truck they dented the hood. They fixed it before he picked it up.
92 the paint flaked so he got it repainted. He waited 30 days to wax it.
Went outside, stepped in a puddle, got in the truck to pull it in the garage, foot slipped from brake to gas, hit the bench, the bench went through the wall hitting the couch and sending it through the sliding glass door on the other side of the room.
My wife and daughter had gotten up moments before. I was in the basement below the family room and heard one heck of BOOM!
It does happen..... *@#$ that is.
Glad nobody was hurt in either story.
