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.”
