BOCA RATON -- A valet parking attendant at the Boca Raton Bridge Hotel drove a customer's car through a concrete second-floor garage wall Sunday morning and crashed to the ground steps away from the Intracoastal Waterway.
The valet company's manager is blaming a stuck gas pedal for the accident.
Initially, the attendant drove forward the 2001 Lincoln Town Car and plowed it into a red Toyota around 9:30 a.m., said Willie Walker, a witness.
The driver then shifted into reverse and backed the car to the other end of the garage and through the concrete wall. The silver Lincoln wound up standing upright, with its rear end atop a pile of rubble and its front propped up against the building.
"It was a freaky thing," he said. "It was exactly like the movies."
Boca Raton Police did not release the name of the parking attendant, who worked for South Florida Valet Co. in Deerfield Beach.
The hotel brought in the company to help the Bridge Hotel valet service crew Sunday morning, said Derek Cavan, manager of South Florida Valet Co. He declined to identify the employee.
"The accelerator in the vehicle got stuck," Cayan said. "There was nothing wrong [with the valet.] The guy wasn't under the influence. The police interviewed him for almost an hour and let him go. "
Nobody was hurt.
