WASHINGTON — A test drive took a dangerous turn Friday when a woman trying out a Mercedes struck four cars and flipped the vehicle on its side at a dealership in Virginia, NBC Washington reported.
At about 11:30 a.m., a female driver and three passengers were test-driving a Mercedes SUV in the parking lot of the Mercedes-Benz of Arlington dealership on North Glebe Road in Ballston when the woman accelerated at a high rate of speed, according to the report.
The driver then struck four vehicles in the dealership parking lot before taking a sharp turn and crashing the white SUV on its side.
Fire officials said a dealership employee riding in the SUV at the time asked to be checked out by medics at the scene but that there were no reports of injuries.
