We’ve had a busy afternoon in the BangShift news room with tips literally pouring in from all over the world. This one is hot off the presses from Switzerland where a 24-year old man unintentionally launched a brand new 5.0L Mustang off the third story of a parking garage. We have no idea how it happened but we do know that the driver only suffered minor scrapes and bruises, which seems like kind of a miracle, but there were mopeds and a tree to break his fall, so that could explain it.
Authorities are still investigating the accident, but we bet it was a simple case of the dude thinking he was in reverse when in fact he was in a forward gear that caused this. One of the photos, the first we will show below, gives a great perspective on how far the car flew. You can see what looks to be a policeman standing by the open panel that the car smashed through. That falling concrete panel did wonders for the motorcycles parked below, as well.
This is further proof for anyone looking to make an aeroplane out of a Mustang that your idea is a terrible one.
Tighten your belts and assume the crash positon before scrolling down!
Thanks for the tip Marc!
