Blind lawyer didn’t wreck car
CALGARY — A Calgary lawyer has fought back against a car rental agency that maintained he wrecked one of their vehicles.
Robert Fenton says that would be unlikely since he’s never driven a car and doesn’t own a driver’s licence. Fenton is also legally blind.
National Car Rental had wanted $2,500 to cover the cost of the damage to a vehicle the company insisted Fenton rented at the Calgary International Airport.
Fenton suspects he is the victim of identity theft since the credit card used to rent the vehicle belongs to neither Fenton nor his wife, and the driver’s licence on file is definitely not his.
On Friday, a spokeswoman for the car company apologized for the incident and said the mistake will be corrected.
Laura Bryant said in an email they are working to make sure that this never happens again.
“We want to personally apologize to Mr. Fenton and are hopeful that we can work with him to ensure everything is back to normal as soon as possible.”
