Talk about lucky. Although the driver of a Mercedes-Benz G-Class was hospitalized after driving his G-Wagen through the wall of the third floor of a parking garage and landing on his roof in North Hollywood, California, he is alert and alive.
The Mercedes was propelled through the side of the parking garage and flipped onto its roof before landing on the street below. The Los Angeles Fire Department was able to get the trapped driver out. The driver told LAPD officers that the acceleration was unintentional. LAPD representatives said their investigation suggested the driver had stepped on the gas instead of the break, according to ABC 7, adding that drugs and alcohol were not involved in the crash.
