A hapless driver performed some of the world’s worst parking – by hitting reverse by accident and smashing through a 50ft high concrete wall.
The woman had just arrived to work at a government office when she went to reverse into a space on the fourth floor of the car park in Nonthaburi last Thursday morning.
But after edging back into the space, the motorist was trying to straighten up and accidentally pressed the automatic transmission’s reverse pedal instead of the accelerate pedal to go forward.
In her panic, she then pushed the pedal even further to the ground, causing the car to jump backwards.
CCTV from the building shows how the brand new Toyota C-HR smashed through the concrete barrier and was left hanging dangerously over the drop, around 50ft in the air.
Shocked staff at the country’s Ministry of Health ran to help the driver. She was carried to safety from the passenger door as the collision had broken the handle on her side.
The clumsy worker, who was too embarrassed by the incident to reveal her name, told local television that she had recently bought the automatic transmission car and was mixed up by the two different pedals.
