AMAZING images have captured the aftermath of an accident in which an SUV shot out of an MOT test centre – and on to another car.
The gold-coloured 4×4 Honda was left see-sawing across the top of a black vehicle following the incident in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs.
No-one was hurt in the incident shortly before 9am today (thu) but the black Honda appeared to have had its windscreen smashed.
It is thought that the driver accidentally accelerated while in the raised car park, shot over the wall and pavement below, and then crashed on to a passing car.
A spokeswoman for Alan’s Test Centre declined to comment except to say that no-one at the MOT centre had seen the incident.
Social media users were shocked at the images that were shared online.
Tim Willcock wrote: “To clear the pavement and land on top rather than hit the side it must have been going some.”
Elliott Mitchell added: “He must have effectively launched off the side to get the back to clear it.”
James Gardner said: “It could have been a lot worse if it was left hand drive.”
Paul Noblet quipped: “Obviously trying to create a Honda Hybrid.”
A spokeswoman for Staffordshire Police said: “Police were called to a report of a two vehicle collision in Wetmore Road, Burton-upon-Trent, just after 8.50am on Thursday 9 February.
“The collision involved a gold Honda CRV 4×4 which was using a raised parking area. The CRV left this area and came to rest on top of a black Honda Civic which was on the road below this area.
“The driver of the CRV, a 36-year-old man from Burton, was interviewed at the scene and reported for summons for driving other than in accordance with his licence and having no insurance. The vehicles were both recovered.”
A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “The 55-year-old woman in the bottom car was uninjured and the ambulance service took her home.
“The person in the top car was not treated.”
This is the second time this year that a car has accidentally parked on another car.
In January shocking photos showed a silver Mazda parked up on top of another motor in Kirkcaldy train station car park, in Fife.
And in December shocking footage emerged of a pensioner’s car mounted on top of another vehicle in Dumbarton, West Dumbartonshire, after the driver mistook the accelerator for the brake.
