Frank hit some particularly bumpy railroad tracks 26 miles outside of his home in New York City at three in the morning. This broke an engine mount. Sometimes when an engine mount breaks, the car still works, but the shift mechanism is out of whack. That’s what happened with Frank’s car. His shifter would only let him shift into reverse. So, he started driving backward. He went more than 25 miles in reverse before a police officer stopped him. He was three blocks from home.
