Valet Parks Porsche 911 Underneath Subaru At Hyatt Regency Hotel In Sydney

A valet at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Sydney allegedly lost control of the Porsche 911 he was tasked to look after, giving a whole new meaning to the term ‘double parked’.

The accident occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning, leaving the valet trapped underneath an orange Subaru. Emergency services were eventually forced to cut a hole in the 911’s soft-top in order to extract the man, as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.

According to Hyatt Regency marketing and sales director, Matthew Talbot, the valet wasn’t injured.

“Luckily the car underneath had a soft top, so [emergency services] were able to cut open that soft canopy and [they] got our driver out of there.”

Talbot went on to say that the valet is in good spirits after having been assured that “everything would be all right”.

The hotel will be doing a “full assessment” of the incident, alongside authorities, as well as the owners of all three vehicles vehicles involved.

“Hyatt Regency Sydney places the utmost importance on the safety of our staff and guests. A full investigation is being conducted by hotel management over the next few days,” said a hotel spokeswoman in a statement.

As for how it went down in the eyes of witness Jonathan Bouzaid, he mentions in his Instagram feed that the valet “hit the car in front from a parked position, he then must have panicked and hit the accelerator causing the Porsche to go further under the orange car and pushing the white car into the bollards.”

    Hey valet, now might be a good time for you to start thinking of a different line of work.

    “According to Hyatt Regency marketing and sales director, Matthew Talbot, the valet wasn’t injured.”

    Wait until the Porsche owner learns of the accident before concluding the valet “wasn’t injured.”

    Usually when you hand your keys to someone who’s job it is to park your car, you somehow think they’d know how to drive.
    No better way to damage the reputation of Hyatt.

    Looks more like he didn’t know how to drive stick and used to much accelerator to recover from repediatly stalling out the car.

      I never valet unless its mandatory at a establishment. Every time, I cringe as the valet struggles to engage first gear while over-revving the engine. Just let me park my own damn car.

    When will people learn, only schmucks use valet parking?

    That poor valet, if only it was a Tesla he was tasked to look after, then he could have blamed the Autopilot.
