Florida resident is fortunate to be alive and must thank him for his love for hot sauce.

A SUV drove by the restaurant just seconds after the man who had eaten at Winter Haven Taco Bell on Sunday to get hot sauce.

The unidentified man would have been struck by a car if he hadn’t stood up to grab the hot sauce. His seat was right in front of him.

According to The Orlando Sentinel, a 77 year-old man believed his SUV was in reverse as he attempted to pull out from a parking lot. Instead, he drove 10ft into the restaurant.

The accident did not result in any injuries, but significant damage to the restaurant was done.
