Driver Cuts Foot Off After Clipping It Against Wall

Police say man was driving with his foot outside car door when he clipped it against a wall.

A man driving with his foot outside a car completely severed it off when he clipped it against a wall, Sgt. John Hurd said.

At around 4:40 p.m. Wednesday, emergency crews were sent to a report of a solo-traffic collision at the intersection of Rutan Drive and Sonic Avenue, near East Airway Boulevard.

When officials arrived on scene, they located the crash and injured man inside a private lot of a storage facility on Rutan Drive.

The man was taken to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley for his injury, Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff Peters said.

Police continue to investigate the incident and it is unknown at this time why the man was driving with his foot outside the vehicle.

"Everybody cut Footloose!" Yeah, I'm sorry, I had to go Kenny Loggins/Kevin Bacon there on everyone.

Since this is over a day old "breaking news", you'd think someone at this 3rd rate POS rag could at least update the story. Jesus......

"Hey, one more word outta you and you're chopped off at the ankles!" (from the original Dirty Harry, as I remember the quote =) )

Good one! Or you could say he was footloose and fancy free. Fancy would be the name of his left foot that now he keeps in a jar by his bed.

I was there when this happened, the driver was drunk and trying to do reverse doughnuts. There was a lot of blood...

I think you are a jerk for your comments and bottom line someone was hurt in this accident and you should think about that.

Several of you are "mean spirited". Sounds like an accident to me and I would not wish this on anybody.
jonbuna2 August 26, 2012 at 04:11 PM
all of you except 'have a heart' are pathetic. buna could mop the floor up with all u, combined.
Tahoe22 August 26, 2012 at 04:16 PM
Yeah, driving drunk & wrecklessly is a real "accident".
Michael Allen August 26, 2012 at 07:06 PM
Yeah, I don't think so. Anyone that talks about themselves in the third-person is generally a wuss.
Tahoe22 August 26, 2012 at 07:09 PM
Well, it's pretty obvious that he wouldn't kick our asses.
Kathy Montgomery August 26, 2012 at 11:12 PM
"Will the real Jon Buna please stand up"? Oops.....

I am sooooo sorry about the stepping stone comment! My bad!!! Loosing a foot is a tragedy but loosing a life is worse!!!
jonbuna2 August 27, 2012 at 01:54 AM
look at chubby, soft faced michael allen. jury says definitely soft and most certainly a wuss.
Michael Allen August 27, 2012 at 02:07 AM
Sorry, I have a hard time reading the slop you type. Try using your shift key every once in a while if you want to be taken seriously by someone other than just yourself, son. Also, it's not "u", it's "you". I know you're very busy and important (in your mind), but us simple people have a hard time following along with cool people like you. Do u kn0w wha I m3an, yo?
jonbuna2 August 27, 2012 at 02:48 AM
had you deserved my respect i would elect to capitalize ur name or the first word in each sentence. i don't take this board seriously, i dedicate that time to things like work/career that matter (though from the looks of ur pic...). it's just odd that everyone here is talking trash about a good friend of mine.
jonbuna2 August 27, 2012 at 02:49 AM
to repeat - look at soft faced michael allen.
Tahoe22 August 27, 2012 at 02:50 AM
WTF do you expect people to say? The idiot was smoked on a Wednesday afternoon whipping donuts in his car with his f'ing leg hanging out the door. Heeeellllllllllllloooooooooo
Michael Allen August 27, 2012 at 03:00 AM
Your panties are in a twist, I'd say you take the board too seriously. Actually, your friend would have been lucky if I had been at the accident scene, I'm an excellent medic. Those of us that see this kind of stuff on a fairly regular basis, this is how we keep our sense if humor. You don't capitalize because you're lazy. I seriously doubt you took the time to think, let alone make some grand decision to not type like a grown-up. Oh, and it's "you're", not "ur". Again, LAZY!
jonbuna2 August 27, 2012 at 04:06 AM
no. in that context it's ur for your. we don't use 'you're' in my previous post.
Mathew Mobley August 27, 2012 at 06:05 AM
ha ha ha ha ha love it.. i keep checking everyday to see the joke i have no sympathy for dunk people better they hurt them self's then hit a child or something
Michael Allen August 27, 2012 at 06:22 AM
I wasn't even going to comment on the extremely poor grammar, I was giving you way more credit than you deserve I guess. Even a not cool guy like me knows "ur" is short-hand for "you're" and "u r" for "you are". Laaaaaaaaazy! Here, let me put this issue to bed, because I'm not following this post anymore after this- I'll put it in terms you'll understand: I dnt rlly cr wht u thnk, sry u r sad abt the msg brd! cher up emo kid! If the punctuation throws you off, oh well, do your best! And don't do drugs!
Michael Allen August 27, 2012 at 06:26 AM
Have a heart- get a grip, fellow jerk, I've seen and treated FAR worse. This isn't even a close 100th. YOU should think about that. Or not, doesn't really matter to me! Loaded drivers, I'm all out of tears for them, this one was LUCKY. Mathew- Pretty much.

Mathew Mobley August 31, 2012 at 12:47 AM
Right on Michael "don't do drugs"
