Remote control car severely hurts woman

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- A Michigan City, Ind., woman received two gashes on her legs when she was struck by a remote-controlled hobby car.

The toy, described by the Michigan City News Dispatch as being the size of a shoe box and weighing about 10 pounds, struck the woman while she was checking her mailbox. The paper says the gashes in the 86-year-old woman's legs were so deep, one went to the bone.

The toy was being operated from some 300 feet away by a 23-year-old man using radio signals.

One local hobby store owner tells the paper cars of the type that struck the woman are gasoline powered and can reach speeds of up to 60 mph.
