Parked on Top of Another Car

When you park in a quiet country town you probably don’t expect to find another car on top of yours when you return.

Yet that most unusual incident occurred in Egilsstaðir in East Iceland on Friday morning. An unlucky driver was parking his car by the Icelandair hotel, when suddenly something disturbed him and he stepped on the gas pedal instead of the break.

The car then when over the curb by the parking space, onto the hood of another car and ended up on top of it, Austurfréttir reports.

The owner of the ‘lower’ car had owned it for only one week when he had this unbelievable experience. Nobody was hurt in the incident, but the lower car was damaged. Hopefully insurance will cover the cost.
