Although we have seen our fair share of odd accidents over the years, it has managed to take us by surprise. Surveillance footage from a used car dealership in Florida shows a Cadillac Eldorado hitting several cars awaiting new owners. Madeleine Wright, reporter for local ABC News affiliate WPLG, covered the particular incident on his staff Twitter Account.
She learned from the owner of the dealership that a total of seven parked vehicles were damaged. The cause – well, other than the speed – of this rather bizarre accident remains shrouded in mystery. What really baffles us is what happens the day after the accident. Images captured by the neighboring camera show a woman fleeing the scene as she leaves the damaged Cadillac and climbs over the fence of the dealership.
It happened in the early hours of Tuesday and Madeleine Wright said that the northbound lanes of NW 27e Avenue near NW 98e The street had to be temporarily closed to clean up the area. The driver had to be transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Miami herald learned from police that the car briefly caught fire after the collision and was eventually towed.
Hector Borroto, the owner’s father, saw the glass half full in his interview with a Fox subsidiary WSVN. He mentioned that it was a good thing that it happened so early in the morning because this area is very crowded during the day. Clearly, this incident could not have happened at a worse time given the negative impact of car sales on the COVID-19 pandemic:
“Most cars are a total loss. It is difficult, difficult for us. It’s a tough time, especially with the ongoing coronavirus, this crisis. It is a family business and we try to keep the cars in good condition. We’re trying to build the business, and you know, it’s sad. It’s sad for us. It is not a good day for us, not today. “
