Car smashes through petrol pump after driver mistakes accelerator for brake

A car smashed through a petrol pump in southern China after the driver pressed the accelerator instead of the brake by mistake.

The dramatic CCTV video, filmed in Yichun City in Jiangxi Province on February 3, shows a car speeding into a petrol station and smashing into a fuel dispenser before halting after smashing into a car and a wall.

The driver was about to slow down and drove into the service zone to have a rest.

However, she mistook the accelerator for the brake and crashed into the petrol station.

According to reports, the driver got her license last year and she was still in training.

Fortunately, no one was injured. The case was being investigated.
