85-year-old Va. man drives truck off Leesburg parking garage deck

LEESBURG, Va. (AP) — An 85-year-old man sustained minor injuries Thursday after police say he drove through a Leesburg parking garage at high speed and crashed through a second-story wall.

Rattan Bhatia, whose pickup truck landed on two unoccupied benches below, has been charged with reckless driving.

Leesburg police say the Hillsboro man drove over a curb, then went through a metal barrier and the brick face of the building before landing on the benches on the Town Green courtyard.

Police say Bhatia was alone in the truck and was treated at the scene for his injures.
