When you park your car in a garage, you generally assume it's safe from head-on accidents. Here's how one man found out that wasn't the case and found out what happens when your Mazda gets a Nissan hat.

John sends in this story about finding someone putting a Nissan in his Mazda3:

At 2 a.m. I was awoken by the local PD saying my car was in an accident. I woke up from my slumber and I started scratching my head. My car is parked in a garage, how can it possibility be in an accident when its stationary? Then I thought to myself well maybe someone pulled in and accidentally hit the back of it, maybe a minor scratch.

A Nissan was on top of my hood and windscreen! Still drowsy at the moment, my first reaction was, oh no, I hope my corksport SRI/TIP is ok, it took me forever to install it... And then reality kicked in and OMG a sedan is parked on top of my baby!

Turns out the wreck was caused by a driver who confused the brake and accelerator after just a month of driving experience. The damage falls short of totaling the Mazda3. Thanks John!

I don't care how inexperienced they are, any driver that does that should be limited to driving subcompact cars like the Smart car or Toyota Yaris. The small size will then hopefully make people like this put more effort into getting acquainted with the location of the gas and brake pedals.
