A woman test driving a brand-new Mercedes GLE in Arlington, Virginia got a great evaluation of the safety features after crashing the SUV into four other cars and rolling over directly in front of the dealership.

According to Fox 5 DC, none of the four occupants in the Mercedes were seriously injured, and it’s believed that the driver may have confused the gas pedal for the brake pedal.


That seems to be a pretty common accident—perhaps your foot just slips. But for it to result in five damaged vehicles, one rolled on its side, with the salesman in the car with you (and presumably the driver’s family), all right in front of the showroom windows... is pretty uncommon.

But, luckily nobody was physically hurt. Now let’s enjoy some Facebook comment humor, courtesy of Fox 5's post:
