It's happened to you or someone you know; you think the car is in park, and prepare to exit the vehicle, and then it starts to roll. Now, most drivers catch themselves that moment, throw it back in park, and wait for their heart rate to come back down...This was not one of those times.
In this case, a Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the unfortunate vehicle involved, and its operator thinks that the car is in park, or that the emergency brake is engaged. We won't even talk about the fact that the driver nearly drags the car along the cement wall while backing it out, but it it appears to come to a stop on the entrance to the street. When the driver gets out to pick something up in the driveway, the luxury sedan starts to crawl forward, directly at the driver!
The driver manages to avoid being run over by her own E-Class, but then in the process of attempting to recover the car experiences further humiliation. We'll keep it a surprise until you check out the video below.
While you may not go to hell for eeking out a chuckle in response to this video, we obviously feel bad for the poor victim here. There is no description for this video, so we cannot confirm if she was seriously hurt. We home not! Let this be a cautionary tale, and make sure your car is in park!
