Older seniors tend to have different perceptions/recollections of events. Add to that the fact that many elderly drivers do not like to admit when they make a mistake on the road and oftentimes become extremely defensive about it and you have a scenario where the telling of the tale though skewed is still not being intentionally skewed. My 94 year old stepdad had his license suspended a few years back after a wreck where his story that he honestly perceived to be true and factual was not the same story as all of the witnesses- including the state trooper who also witnessed it. It took him several months to regain his license but to this day he sticks to his story!
