Customer crashes his brand new car live at the dealership
That's what you might call a bad day
When you pick up a brand new car at the dealership, you're usually very excited and have a great time. You replace your old vehicle that has been faithful to you for many years with a fresh and beautiful one. Everything is then set up so that the customer is happy.
The employees welcome you warmly and the car is carefully prepared so that you don't forget this moment. This is even more true in some countries like India where buying a brand new car is seen as the achievement of a lifetime. A form of euphoria overwhelms the new owners and they become particularly excited.
But sometimes the excitement can give way to overconfidence, which is extremely dangerous when driving a new vehicle. This customer who came to pick up his Kia Carnival learned this the hard way. He crashed his car into a wall just outside the dealership building.
The unfortunate incident was filmed live. The two occupants of the vehicle were unharmed. The driver most likely confused the throttle and brake on the automatic minivan. Even though this is not a supercar, it still makes us feel bad, especially since the Carnival is a high-end vehicle that very few Indians can afford.
