Car crashes through car dealership window in Leuven

Imagine the consternation at a garage in Leuven on Thursday when one of the sales reps drove a car through a first floor wall and out of the building! This is exactly what happened at the Mazda dealership on the Tiensesteenweg.

A member of staff was working on the car but clearly made a wrong move.  As a result the car was set in motion.  It drove straight through the first floor wall and window and with a loud bang ended up on the forecourt a floor below. The garage employee who was in the car, a 58-year-old man, was taken to a Leuven hospital with serious injuries, but is not in a life-threatening situation.

It was the regional broadcaster ROB-tv that tweeted the news.
