Van winds up atop cars in parking lot crash
CLEARWATER (FOX 13) - Yes, parking in Clearwater can be really bad. Tourists and residents alike are used to hunting for spots and negotiating clogged roads. But when a van winds up on top of a sedan, even the most jaded beachgoers have to do a double-take.
That was the scene along Sand Key on Friday, when a minor parking lot accident sent a minivan -- with a 74-year-old woman at the wheel, a city spokesperson said -- crashing through a barrier and onto a two cars parked a few feet below.
Photos shared by Clearwater Fire Rescue showed the Kia van straddling atop the roof of a Buick and an Acura after crashing through a railing outside the Shoppes on Sand Key strip mall, just south of Sand Key Park.
Crews are planning to use a crane to lift the van from its delicate perch.
"You don't see this type of accident every day," CFR tweeted.
Thankfully, no one was injured.
