A California man investigating a commotion outside of his Bel-Air home Wednesday evening found his wife calmly sitting in her car, only her car was on its side.

Benjamin Neufeld was in his kitchen when he heard loud scraping noises and the mummer of a gathering crowd. He came out to find his wife's blue Honda laying on its driver's side.

"There was my wife in her car, calm as a cucumber," Benjamin told KTLA5. "Eventually they fished her out and towed the car away"

Elizabeth Neufeld, 85, was unhurt in the accident. She told police her car flipped after a slow speed collision with a curb at just the right angle. Witnesses told NBC Los Angeles the pair stood around chatting with onlookers and even posed for a picture while they waited for emergency crews to rescue Elizabeth.

        "towed away" NOT "threw away"...Roy, what you need to take, it seems, are reading comprehension lessons.

          This accident could have happened to anyone of any age the car hit a curve and overturned , you could have the same type of accident even at your (young age) if you are young.

          You're 79 years old with "POOR EYESIGHT"?..., And, you're STILL driving yourself around?! NO, you do NOT "NEED TO" continue driving. You're putting yourself and others in potential danger of serious injury or death just because you don't want to be inconvenienced. I don't know what city you live in, but most major metropolitan areas (and some rural areas as well) DO have transportation options and other services (e.g., grocery delivery) available for elderly persons in your situation. I SUGGEST YOU GOOGLE "TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE FOR ELDERLY UNABLE TO DRIVE IN {Name of your City or Region Here}." Good Luck and God Bless.

          Turn off the caps you idiot and stop screaming. If you can see the keyboard then you DON'T need to type in all caps. If you know anything about keyboard shortcuts you'd know that by holding the control button down while at the same time hitting the + key you can expand the size of the comment box to the size of your monitor. To shrink it back to normal size hold down the control button while hitting the _ key. STOP SCREAMING.

      That makes a scary statement about that model Honda now does it not. Slow moving and tips over when it hits a curb. Interesting.
