Woman inexplicably crashes Toyota Camry between two cars at dealership after test drive

The unidentified woman had gone to the Sterling McCall dealership in Houston with her father to purchase a car and took a white Toyota Camry out for a test drive

The scene of the crash.

A woman in Houston, Texas had to be rescued from the car she was test driving when she somehow crashed it between two other parked vehicles at the dealership, over the weekend.

The unidentified woman had gone to the Sterling McCall dealership in Houston with her father to purchase a car and took a white Toyota Camry out for a test drive. Her father and a salesperson were in the car with her.

Apparently, at some point during the drive, she lost control of the vehicle and crashed it between two other cars that were parked at the dealership.

Cellphone videos of the incident that surfaced online show the employees at the dealership rushing to the driver’s aid – pulling her from the crashed vehicle.

A worker at the dealership, Saiid Abdouh said: “All of a sudden I see a car. It's wedged in between two of the cars and there's a bunch of commotion going on.”

Fortunately, neither the driver, her father nor the salesperson, who accompanied them for the test drive, were hurt or injured.

Reacting to the incident, the driver’s father had this to say: “To the kind, compassionate people who helped us out of the car, made sure that we were not hurt and offered words of comfort and encouragement, we can't thank you enough.

'To the gawkers who stood by with their cell phones poised to broadcast images of our misfortune and to all those who have posted such cruel comments, I am so glad that our potentially life-threatening experience has been a source of entertainment.

'Shame on each and every one of you for your insensitivity and I pray that you or one of your loved ones never has to be ripped apart by the pack mentality of today's social media. Despite the name, I think as a society we have never been more anti-social and unable to relate or empathize with one another on a personal level.

'Finally, to my beautiful, awesome daughter, thank you for your courage and dignity throughout this ordeal. Hold your head high, sweetheart with the knowledge that you have risen above the detractors and outclassed all the haters. Thank you for your inspiration and I love you very much.”
