BMW Causes Luxury Car Sandwich In Downtown Parking Garage
The brake is on the left, gas pedal on the right.
Just a reminder to drivers when they pull into a multi-level downtown parking garage.
One motorist returning a rented BMW, forgot this driving maxim and allegedly got brake and accelerator confused in a Loop parking garage Thursday. As a result of accidentally hitting the gas, the 74-year old busted through a barrier and came crashing down on top of a Jaguar and Mercedes on the level below according to CBS TV.
Unsurprisingly, the two car owners were a bit miffed when they got back to see an SUV had landed on top of their vehicles. Luckily, now one was hurt, including the driver who declined to go to the hospital.
As far as the driver goes, we sure hope he paid extra to the car rental company to get the additional insurance coverage. In this case definitely worth it.
