Elderly Man Takes Dunkin' Donuts Drive-Through a Little Too Literally

At age 86, Seymour Zayon is one of South Florida's active seniors, but it might be time for him to retire from driving automobiles. Around 1:45 this afternoon, Zayon and his wife were looking to park at the Dunkin' Donuts on Military Trail Road in Boynton Beach.

But in what sounds like a classic case of accelerator/brake confusion, Zayon drove his car right through the store's glass window, striking a pedestrian, a diner, and a Dunkin' Donuts employee, according to a news release by the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office.

The three suffered only minor injuries. PBSO has not filed charges against Zayon.
