Remind me not to get into cars made before 1990. Jerry Seinfeld was driving his 1967 Fiat BTM on Saturday night when his brakes failed. He pulled the emergency brake to keep himself from hurtling into an intersection and the car went tits up. Literally – it flipped over!
East Hampton Town Police Chief Todd Sarris says that Seinfeld’s James Bondian driving “avoided a serious accident.” Jerry wasn’t hurt and his wife Jessica (the plagarist) said that he “was a little shocked when he walked in and it started to dawn on him what happened.”
Jerry made some unfunny observational humor in regards to the incident.
“Because I know there are kids out there, I want to make sure they all know that driving without braking is not something I recommend, unless you have professional clown training or a comedy background, as I do,” he told the New York Post.
I’ve flipped cars before. It’s a little disconcerting when the world turns upside down and the ceramic baseball gloves your Mom made as centerpieces for the Little League banquet fly around the car and crack you in the head.
