This is the moment a woman driver appears to mix up her pedals and reverses into the wall behind her before suddenly accelerating and crashing her SUV into the wall in front of her.
The accident was filmed by a CCTV camera in the village of Svetly in the district of Elizovsky in the far-eastern Russian region of Kamchatka Krai, and the video was later shared on social media.
In the black and white footage, the driver is seen starting up the SUV before it starts to roll backwards.
The female motorist then starts to pull away, but the vehicle appears suddenly reverses and the back of the SUV crashes into the wall.
The bungling driver then appears to change gear and step on the accelerator as the vehicle smashes head-on into the opposite wall.
According to local media, the unnamed woman driver reversed into the wall of Versailles Cafeteria before ramming the wall of a warehouse where she caused the most damage.
Reports said the driver mixed up the pedals of her SUV, the make and model of which are currently unclear, however the two affected companies have agreed to settle the matter without getting the authorities involved.
Local media said the warehouse wall was badly damaged and various products were knocked onto the ground, but fortunately no one sustained any injuries in the incident.
Netizen ‘Vrucninsky’ wrote: “She seems like a very dangerous driver who could kill someone one day.”
‘Qualchik1’ commented: “This is due to the standard of driving schools we have.”
