Pensioner raced along motorway in mobility scooter

A man accidentally rode his mobility scooter along a busy dual carriageway last weekend.

A 92-year-old gentleman braved the road rage with his four-wheeled assisted vehicle on a 70mph road in Crawley, West Sussex on Friday (18.03.16) after taking a wrong turn.

Police Constable Katie Breeds said: "He was very confused and really didn't know where he was.

"We sat him in the back of our police car and waited for a colleague in a van to collect the mobility scooter. And then we delivered scooter and driver back home to his warden-assisted accommodation in Crawley."

Tthe confused driver was not harmed and is safely recovering at home after his not so scenic detour.
