A learner driver had emergency services in Shellharbour fearing the worst yesterday, when they were called to an accident at a car park in Remembrance Place.
NSW Police, police rescue and the fire brigade responded to reports a car had driven from a tiered car park and landed on top of another car.
Initially emergency services believed the car had driven off the multi-storey car park at Stockland Shellharbour, prompting a major response.
About 10.40am, emergency vehicles streamed into Stockland before being redirected to the car park behind Greater Union to find the learner driver’s black Toyota sedan had driven through a garden bed and over a wall, coming to rest on the bonnet of a black Holden sedan.
‘‘When we first got the call we thought that it had happened over at Stockland, which is why there was such a big response,’’ Sergeant Jack Brown from Lake Illawarra police said.
‘‘There was nobody injured. What it looks like has happened is that the driver’s panicked as they were parking and hit the accelerator.’’
Both cars were towed from the scene.
