WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - An elderly driver lost consciousness and carved a hundred yard path of destruction through a West Valley neighborhood at 4000 West 4360 South.
The 88-year-old man named Francis Deforest was traveling north on 4000 West when his car veered off the road and plowed through a fire hydrant and fence line.
Jayne Erickson was sitting at home near the crash site during the several impacts.
"I heard a big loud screech and then a boom," she said.
So how old is too old to drive? Utah's Driver's License Division says there is no set age, rather a series of dexterity and knowledge tests determine the answer.
Jayne says 4000 West in West Valley is known for crashes. "I'm thinking oh boy here we go again. This is the third time it's happened," said Erickson.
West Valley Police cited the Deforest for failure to maintain control of his vehicle.
Call the Utah driver license division to submit an anonymous tip that someone may be a poor driver.
The division will call that person in for a series of test to protect the public.
