Man trying to ‘travel through time’ smashes car through two Florida businesses

  • The unidentified man told police he was ‘trying to travel through time’ when his car smashed through Advanced Tax Services and Pensacola Caskets
  • Luckily, it was Sunday and no one was in the offices
  • The 40-year-old allegedly told police he was ‘entering a time portal’ 
  • The ‘time traveler’ was issued a citation and is being evaluated at a local hospital  

A confused man who thought he was time traveling smashed his car through two businesses, say police.

A Dodge Challenger plowed through two business in a Pensacola, Florida strip mall on Sunday morning, according to Pensacola News Journal.

The driver sped through the intersection of North Davis Highway and West Fairfield Drive at approximately 10:50am and careened through the front door of Advanced Tax Services.

The car then kept going, smashing through the wall and into the business next door, Pensacola Caskets.


‘It looked like a bomb went off,’ Advanced Tax Services’ general manager Emanuel Mores told WEAR.

Police said the unidentified driver told them he was ‘trying to travel through time.’

Instead, he traveled through two present-time businesses, causing huge amounts of damage.

According to the Huffington Post, the 40-year-old man was from Nashville, and had his seat belt on during the crash, and was not injured.

‘He stated that he was driving at high speeds on the interstate in an attempt to enter a time portal, and that he did not leave the time portal until the crash occurred,’ according to a police report obtained by HuffPo.

The driver has reportedly been issued a citation for reckless driving and is also in the hospital being evaluated.

Mores said he was mad about the incident, but added it could have been worse.

‘Eventually I was happy no one was hurt. You know, that was my biggest concern ’cause, you know, if anyone was hurt, anybody could have died or whatever,’ he said.

Luckily, no one was inside of the two businesses when the ‘time traveler’ struck.
