If that was a MINI, we would have thought that it was yet another one of those out-of-this-world marketing ploys. Unfortunately, that’s not a MINI - it’s a Mercedes - and it’s not meant for any form of PR publicity.

According to the Tulsa World, the car ended up in that predicament after the driver was backing into a parking space on the seventh floor of the building when the driver’s foot inexplicably got stuck on the gas pedal, causing it to break through the building’s exterior wall.

Fortunately, the debris that rained down from the crash didn’t hit any civilians, instead crashing into a number of unsuspecting vehicles in the parking lot outside. As for the Mercedes, parking attendants were able to drive it back inside the confines of the parking space since the rear tires still had a smooth surface underneath it to drive on.

Car crashes are getting weirder and weirder by the day, huh?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

At least it didn’t go entirely through the wall. However, establishment management would have to do something on the strength of their walls especially after that incident.

I thought that this was a video. Eventhough the damage is can be repaired, still he’s going to reconstruct the wall of the parking area he went through.

I agree good thing that the wall manages to hold on the roof of the car. But I was wondering why there are no concrete scratches on the body of the car?.

Luckily, this car was not able to fall down and the driver is not injured but that was really pretty close.

How in the world did he do that? Well good thing that it didn’t go through and plunges down the ground. That was a tough luck though.
