Old Woman’s Scooter Runs Out Of Control

by | 4th, April 2009

EILEEN Bishop, natch., is an 87-year-old Cornish woman sat astride her mobility scooter – HER OUT OF CONTROL mobility scooter!

She and her husband Anthony were on their way to church (of course) when, as he claims, she “disappeared off the radar”.

She was located heading along the A3075 towards Newquay.

Mr Bishop says the scooter “hadn’t been going that well”. It is set to three-quarters speed.

“Suddenly she passed me at full tilt. I shouted after her but she is a bit deaf. I couldn’t chase her as I’ve had a triple heart bypass. She just disappeared off the radar.”

We now hear from Mrs Bishop:

“I just lost him. I was half asleep to tell you the truth.”

Rider and scooter are now safe, with the machine driven by PCSO Michael Ginnelly back to Perranporth.

Of course, what with her being old joyriding is ruled out, which is ageist and very wrong.
