Student driver crashes and flips over Fiat 500 on just her second lesson
There’s a reason why people need to go to driving school before being given the freedom to run roughshod out on the street. For their sake and ours, they should at least be given the opportunity to harness their driving skills in a controlled environment free from angry motorists and rampaging vehicles.
That is, unless, the student driver flips over a Fiat 500 in just her second lesson. Then, it might be prudent to steer clear of giving her a license any time soon.
Student driver, Krisztina Jaksa, found out first-hand the perils of driving after losing control of a Fiat 500 in just her second driving lesson when the steering wheel of the car inexplicably locked itself. The panicked 24-year old then mistakenly pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brakes, sending the Fiat 500 into an unexpected date with a gatepost before rolling over on its roof.
Not exactly the right way to impress your instructor, is it?
Fortunately, both Jaksa and her instructor, Glen Berley, managed to get out of the mangled 500 with nothing more than a few minor injuries, although we wouldn’t be surprised if the instructor immediately files his resignation papers as a result of this accident.
As for Miss Jaksa, let’s just say that we figured the accident didn’t shake her the least bit considering she has already signed up for her next lesson in a few weeks.
Here’s to hoping she has an uneventful set of lessons the rest of the way.
