A 91-year-old man who always wanted to know what it is like to smash through a garage door can now tick the activity off his bucket list.

Walter Thomas, of Woodstock, Chicago, used a donated SUV to back into the door of a garage which was due to be torn down anyway.

Asked to describe the experience, he said: "I hit the gas, squealed the tires and bang - we went through the door."

The nonagenarian said he does not know what else he could do to top that.
