London, Jan 18: A British woman driver managed to put her car on top of her neighbours' as she stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake. While making a three-point turn, the woman raced her 18,000-pound B Class Mercedes onto the roof of a Chrysler Neon parked in a driveway in Ashtead, Surrey.
Robert Den-Hartog, owner of the 10,000-pound-Chrysler, was left wide-eyed when both he and his wife Claire woke up after the noise. "I couldn't believe my eyes why I saw what happened," the Telegraph quoted Robert as saying.
"My wife and I had tea that night and just gone to bed at about 10.30 pm, tired after work and I have to get up early. I was fast asleep when Claire woke up when she heard the noise and ran to the bedroom window."She said, 'you're not going to believe this,' so I ran over to the bedroom window and looked out. I just said: 'Holy Moses!' and ran down stairs to help the woman out of the car," he added.
The 35-year-old continued: "When we were woken by it I was
shocked and hoping that she wasn't hurt. I wasn't really angry but
you never get the full money back form the insurance and I suppose
now I'm going to have to look for a new car. I think mine is pretty
written off." Though cops were called but no charges were made.
