A car wound up wedged on top of another car in a crowded parking lot at a shopping center in New Jersey earlier this week.
It was a wild scene at Bergen Town Center Monday, but police say there wasn't much to it -- the driver hit the gas instead of the brake and the vehicle just happened to vault on top of another one.
Max Zavian, who was at the scene, took video of the wreck.
“I did not physically see it happen, however I heard a big noise and turned around to see the cars on top of each other,” he said.
“I personally believe the owner of the silver car on top was trying to back out of a space and was in drive, not reverse, then sped through the barrier and onto the hood of the other car.”
According to Zavian, police and a tow truck got to the scene quickly.
“My reaction was mostly shock, being that I’ve never seen this before... but then again, what else could we expect from Jersey drivers?” Zavian said.
Authorities said no one was hurt.
