STRONGSVILLE -- The whole thing was caught on tape.

Surveillance video shows Daniel Grossman, 79, driving his Buick at 60 miles per hour through the emergency exit doors in mayor's court Wednesday night.

One day later, Grossman is no worse for wear, with scratches on his forehead and a sore knee.

Grossman was southbound on Westwood Road. He says the accelerator pedal stuck, sending his Buick Regal through the emergency doors at 60 miles an hour.

The nearly 80-year-old driver says that, despite the accident, he's fit for the road,.

"If you got glasses on and you know what you're doing, it's ok. There are people I have seen drive in the 90's," Grossman said.

The car hit with such force that the doors crashed into desks clear across chambers. Glass, brick, and block destroyed furniture, walls and ceilings.

The damage could add up to $100,000.
