Reckless driving in Toronto!

In North Carolina, this would almost certain count as reckless driving, and fleeing the scene of an accident.  A Toronto area woman has been arrested in the following parking fiasco in suburban Toronto parking lot.

The woman drove her BMW X5 SUV into the parking lot, apparently hit the gas, not the break, while pulling into a parking spot, and ran over two parked cars.  Fortunately no one was hurt, but the woman, thinking she was unobserved, fled the scene in her car.

The whole thing was captured on a surveillance camera, and uploaded to YouTube where it has received hundreds of thousands of hits.

The good news is that a Hyundai dealership has stepped up to give one of the people whose car was crushed a brand new 2010 Hyundai.  The woman has been arrested, and has her court date set for December.
