Audi driver panicked or had a brain fart whilst manouvering (is that how it is spelt?!) and hit the wrong pedal would be my guess.

I'd say it's held up pretty well.

For a presumably very slow speed impact?

No doubt they will just get away with it as well.

I'd be interested in finding out what happened. I can't help but feeling , some part of me thinks that these types of accidents are so silly, you do wonder if they got their driving license from a box of cereal :-)

Some speed to have driven over the Mclaren, and then ended up on its side.

It looks as though the Audi drove all the way up into the roof then fell over.

Yeah it if was slow speed it would have just nudged it out of the way, you got to have a good run up to mount the car and drive into/over the roof

Similar thing happened at the Shell garage over the road from work a few years ago, however the car doing the crashing was reversing.

On the way to hitting 2 of our display cars she hit a car that was fueling, her car was clearly a write off.

For some reason she just mashed the throttle whilst her car was in reverse, I was the first on the scene, when I opened her car door to see if she was ok, she was hysterically shouting about "that man, that man", there was no man.

A customer of mine recently had a brain fart which resulted in his car which is an auto, ending up in his lounge, if his wife had been in the passenger seat she would have been killed.

Yep, classic case of auto driver hitting the wrong pedal. McLaren in the wrong place at the wrong time as instead of being just bumped, it is low enough to be driven over! eek

Surely the Audi must have been going at a fair speed to have effectively driven up the McLaren rather than just been stopped by hitting its front?

Altogether a quite extraordinary accident though.
