18 year old injured – brake mistaken for gas: crashed into the wall


In Tyrol, a driver’s license holder crashed into a house wall with his car. He had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.

It was a series of shocking moments that ultimately caused the 18-year-old Tyrolean to crash into a wall with his car. At around 11:10 a.m. on Saturday, the young man was driving along the village road in the Tyrolean municipality of Mils. According to his own statements, he almost hit the curb when he reached the Wedl company, so he steered the car sharply to the left to avoid a collision.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t just a “near miss”. After the corner, the driver’s license newcomer started to skid and eventually mistook the brake pedal for the accelerator pedal.

With rescue to the hospital
In a driveway, the house wall stopped the wild ride. There he landed with the left front, with the rear he hit the garden fence and the hedge. The homeowner noticed the accident and started the rescue chain. The 18-year-old complained of pain in his left shoulder and was taken by ambulance to the hospital in Halle.

The car was a total loss. The house suffered damage to the facade, the garden fence and the hedge.
