Some Dude Put His Nissan 350Z Into A Canal While Battling For A Parking Spot

Last night in Coral Gables, Florida, on the campus of the University of Miami, a Nissan 350Z ended up in a canal, after its driver tried to, “to cut another driver off to enter a parking space,” according to The Miami Hurricane, the university’s student newspaper. Reader, be careful out there.


There were no injuries in the incident, and the driver, a male student, was not identified. The car ended up flipped over in the canal, which is connected to Lake Osceola and is located behind the Whitten University Center.

Here’s more from the Hurricane:

The car was pulled out of the water around 10:15 p.m. Police divers began the process of getting the car out shortly before 10 p.m. As the crane pulled the convertible out of the canal and over the same parking spots the driver had been trying to nab just hours earlier, water poured out from the trunk.


A tipster sent us video of the 350Z being pulled from the canal. The car is very wet.

Look, driving is hard! And male college students in particular are very bad at life. And owners of 350Zs, well, they know not what they do. All of this destruction over a simple parking spot.
