This is the moment a hapless driver caused havoc as he tried to park his car – and ended up on top of another vehicle as well as flattening a tree.

The middle-aged motorist, who has not been named, was captured on camera by warehouse worker Tom Evans, 27, as he tried to park-up at a retail park in Rugby, Warwickshire, last Friday.

The driver of the Nissan Terrano had apparently been looking for a space at the Cineworld car park when he managed to drive over a Peugeot 406 – before mounting a Mini.

Fortunately, there was nobody parked in the stationary cars at the time and the driver was uninjured.

Yesterday, Tom, from Rugby, described passing the bizarre scene on his way to a hospital appointment.

He said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes as I drove past. I had to get out my car and take a picture.

“You sometimes hear of drivers having a slight mishap but to run over two cars as well as taking down a tree is something else.

“Talking to people at the scene, it appears the man’s foot slipped from the clutch and he has just careered over the two vehicles.

“You can’t help but laugh but you’ve got to feel for the poor bloke.”

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “We were called to the Junction 1 retail park in Rugby at around 9.56am on Friday to reports a 4×4 had driven over a Mini.

“An ambulance was in attendance and a patient was checked over at the scene but fortunately he was uninjured.”

    Pretty sure that’s a Toyota RAV4 rather than a Nissan Terrano!
