Parking Lot Failure


About a week ago, a woman tried to park her BMW X5 in a gym parking lot in Thornhill, Ontario. For some mysterious reason, she instead drove over two other cars and sat on top of them for a few seconds, like a big game cat savoring her kill. Then she drove off. One of the demolished cars was a 2004 Hyundai Elantra that the owner had just finished paying off, and on Friday Hyundai gave him a new car. Luckily the incident was caught on a security camera, so if you haven't seen it yet, here ya go:

The 62-year-old driver returned to the scene of the crime—she was a member of the gym—last week, where she was identified by a gym employee with a special interest in solving the case. The Globe and Mail writes, "She was identified when an Extreme Fitness staff member, whose own car had been crushed in the Oct. 22 incident, spotted a similar-looking SUV in the parking lot again Wednesday morning [October 28] and called police.

"The Elantra owner, Todd Jamison, was surprised last Friday by a Hyundai representative in the parking lot: ...when colleagues called him into the office on a pretense, he found a shiny 2010 Hyundai Elantra in the lot along with a smiling Hyundai representative. ""We wanted to help the guy," a Hyundai spokesman told "This was our random act of kindness." Either that, or it's the best viral advertising video for both BMW vehicles, and Hyundai customer service, that I've ever seen.

I think it is so sad how insensitive people in this country can be. This is an older woman. More than likely she got disoriented and hit the gas instead of the brake. It was wrong for her to leave, but obviously she was frightened and expected the ridicule that she has thus far received. This is a Christian station, we are a Christian nation. Have some compassion and stop rubbing salt in her wound before you get a scratch of your own. KLOVE be love.

There are still good people out there! (not the lady that drove over the cars) You know things happen for a reason and I believe that this is a way for advertisement but also to show that Love is real and it exists today.

I meant I cant believe she would drive away after doing that. And I do agree that she could have stepped on the gas instead of the brake.
