Mustang crash in Lugano, Switzerland. Image: Manual MeleleoEnlarge Photo
As 20 Minutes Online reports, the inattentive driver mistakenly stepped on the gas instead of the brake, shooting across the parking deck before launching the car off a concrete barrier and through a retaining wall. The chunk of concrete wall dislodged by the Mustang fell some 50 feet to a scooter parking lot below, destroying three scooters.
The Mustang managed some respectable flight time before landing, trunk first, atop a parking barrier and curbside planter. While the car is a total loss, its driver escaped with only minor injuries and a new-found love of religion.
So much for the myth that European drivers don’t make the same mistakes behind the wheel that American drivers do.
