Lincolnton, NC – Jolynn Banner, 59, was attempting to put in a car wash code at the Petro Express car wash on 2230 E. Main St. Instead of rolling her window down to type in the code, she decided to open her Pontiac Firebird’s door and stand inside to reach the pad. Being that this story is on my site, you can almost write the rest of this article yourself. But I’ll go ahead and tell you what happened next.
Mrs Banner’s foot slipped off of the brake causing the car rolled forward with her head sticking out. The car struck the brick wall of the car wash, pinning Banner between her car door and her car’s frame.
She received “crushing injuries to the neck,” and died at the scene, EMS records say.
How this woman lived to the age of 59 is anyones guess.
