An elderly man said his Toyota car’s accelerator stuck, causing him to crash into the steps of a New York synagogue.

Gerald Silver, 86, a D-Day veteran and Purple Heart recipient, was driving home with his wife, Rosalyn, when his 2009 Camry’s gas pedal jammed, causing him to lose control of the car.

Silver hit two parked cars and flew over some bushes before slamming into the steps of the Forest Hills Jewish Center in Queens, according to reports. He nearly missed hitting a group of people, WPIX TV reported. The couple were treated for minor injuries.

Toyota has recalled millions of cars over sticky accelerator pedals.
