Out in North Hollywood, California last week, the driver of a Mercedes-Benz G-Class found himself plunging from the third story of a parking garage. The G-Class ended up on its roof after the drop, but thankfully the driver lived to tell authorities about the tale. According to NBC LA, the driver told authorities that "something got stuck and made him accelerate" through the wall and onto the street below. ABC7 News reports that LAPD investigators said that the driver actualyl stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake and lost control.

Good samaritans came in to help pull the driver from the once-airborne SUV. Eventually, firefighters had to step in to help the trapped driver. The driver was then taken to a nearby hospital with critical injuries, but he was listed in stable condition the following morning.

Interestingly enough, even after falling three stories, the G-Class remained in decent condition. I guess this accident shows just how sturdy Mercedes' famed SUV really is. If you're looking for a strong SUV, a G-Class may just be what you're looking for!
