Nobody likes driving endlessly around a parking lot hoping to find a free space. Evidently, one driver in New Jersey thought it’d be a good idea to simply park on top of another vehicle.
Well, as you can guess, that’s not what actually happened. According to a Maywood Police Department spokeswoman, the driver of a Mercedes-Benz accidentally mistook the brake pedal for the accelerator and drove through a row of bushes before coming to rest on the roof of a Toyota Corolla.
Local resident Max Zavian heard the incident and was able to capture a video. What makes the short clip particularly interesting, other than the obvious fact that it shows a Mercedes on top of a Toyota, is just how whisper quiet the scene was. There were no police in attendance just yet, nor were any car alarms going off. At least this seems to indicate that no one was hurt in this unfortunate incident, so it’s a good thing.
The truth is we’ve come across a number of bizarre parking lot accidents in recent months. Only last week, the driver of a Lexus NX in a Miami Springs parking garage crashed through steel cables and was left precariously dangling over an edge.
