Car ends up in Brussels fountain at Bockstael

The fountain on the Emile Bockstaelplein in Laken was the scene of a bizarre accident yesterday. A young man who had only just obtained his driver's license, drove his vehicle into the fountain and got stuck there. He was sober and explained he had made a mistake by pushing the gas pedal instead of the brake. The car leaked oil in the fountain, which will have to be cleaned. Nobody got injured, but the young man will have to foot the bill after the cleaning.
