YOU CAN’T PARK THERE! CAR PLOUGHS THROUGH CAR PARK WALL IN SHANKLIN

Published at:

A car has ploughed through a wall and has landed on top of another vehicle in Shanklin this morning (Tuesday). 

The owner of a blue Mazda CX-5 is counting the costs of the mistake, which happened sometime before 09:30.

Rather bizarrely, the crossover has gone straight through a raised car park wall and has launched onto the roof of a parked Mazda 2.

Amazingly, no one has been injured in the incident which has occurred on Culver Road, off Arthur’s Hill.

No emergency services are present and it is thought that private recovery of both vehicles is being arranged.

How that’s something you don’t see everyday

Couldn’ t make it up…wonder if this is another “car fault” rather then driver error..maybe another “key worker” too.

My money is on an elderly driver confused about what peddle to push!

Bing Bong

or someone who can’t spell ‘pedal’

Just confused, or just not paying attention?

It’s a good way to save on parking charges. Park directly on a smaller car.

Tksense

O dear and clearly not a mainlander as the car has Island number plates!
it happens and I feel for the person who’s car it is!

A new advertising campaign for mazda

Fred Nurke

Always start the engine in neutral!

daemy

it’s a modern automatic,.. you can’t start it unless it’s in ‘park’
the only way to get there is to start it, put it in ‘drive’ & press the accelerator,… hard! 🙁

Ian

That mazda won’t start until you put your foot on the clutch

Daemy

Doesn’t have a clutch,… It’s automatic

Joe Bloggs

The car park exit was obviously not big enough.

Arthur

Neither was the wall

Joe Bloggs

That solves the parking problem.

Council fault for putting up parking charges

Mazda mating!!

daemy

oh dear,.. another old (confused) person driving an automatic..
 
How to drive:-
start car
put in gear, press pedal to make go.
Oh!, going forwards, not backwards,.. help,.panic.. quick press (brake) pedal,..
not stopping (wrong pedal),.. press harder…
Oh dear,.. why is my car here,.. on top of this other car ?
must be something wrong with it,… couldn’t possibly be my fault

You sound like an utter moron.

daemy

or perhaps they were trying to mate them

Truth

Should have landed at Sandown Airport, or was the driver a Japanese camicarzy…

Old Mike

The blue car seems to have suffered less damage than the wall.

Opinions Matter

Oh dear. Is this the space saving option?

Fred Nurke

Multi storey car parking for beginners.

Ben

FFS…oh well I suppose on a positive note it lucky for the driver that the little brown car was there or the driver could have been seriously hurt.

ron

Definitely a technical problem the manual car suddenly became automatic. Nobody believes me when i say that these things are to confusing for women.

SRichards

TOO not TO,these things are confusing for men

Foggy

I believe I can fly or I wish I could fly right up to the sky but I can’t

Hope driver of Blue car had very long legs, or a step ladder in his boot!!

Level Phil

It is such a shame that shite driving is not an Olympic event. Island motorists would hoover up all the medals.

Arthur

Mazda – Zoom Zoom

daemy

It really goes to show the mentality of most people who comment or rate comments on islandecho,.. that the highest positive rating for a comment on this story, goes to… someone who criticised someone else’s spelling of the word pedal.

Alf O'Centauri

That will buff out with a bit of T-Cut.
