Attendant, 22, Injured After Leaving Limo In Reverse At Car Wash

THOUSAND OAKS  (AP) — Authorities say a 22-year-old car wash worker was injured after accidentally leaving a limousine in reverse at a Thousand Oaks car wash.

The Ventura County Star reports the worker drove the limo onto the tracks at the car wash and left the transmission in reverse.

When the car began moving backwards, the worker tried to push the vehicle from behind, but got stuck between the limo and a SUV.

The man was taken to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center for treatment of a possible broken leg. No one else was injured.
