Blame the foot.

A man who reportedly drove over a curb into a landscaping wall said his foot fell asleep while pressing the gas pedal.

Michael Pole, 400 block of E. Jefferson St., was taking a Sunday afternoon drive when his 2002 silver Toyota ended up in the posies along the 200 block of W. Shoreline Drive.

According to the police report, the 84-year-old said his foot fell asleep and he was unable to remove it from the gas pedal. He told a Sandusky police officer that his foot often falls asleep.

He was cited for failure to control and will have to retake his driver's license test.
