Where not to park…$150,000 Range Rover left wedged in basement after embarrassing crash

£80,000 range rover wedged in a basement
Where not to park… this $150,000 sporty Range Rover was left wedged in a basement after a 14-foot fall on Sunday in Fitzrovia, central London.

It was practically new, having only travelled less than 500 miles, but it was the end for the white 4×4 after it crashed and fell 14-feet, getting stuck horizontally between a wall and a basement. The worst possible position!

Apparently, the sporty car went through the railings on Fitzroy Street, near Oxford Street, and then landed in the tricky position. It was stuck in such an impossible situation that the fire brigade had to be called to try and remove the vehicle.

Luckily, witnesses claimed that the driver and three passengers left the scene without injuries, but the same cannot be said for the car which was left with a crushed roof!

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw this posh car stuck at the bottom. That would either take a lot of skill or bad luck to land a huge car down there.

I spoke to one of the neighbours who said the car had four girls in it and they were all right, which in itself is a miracle. I’ve never seen anything like that before..”

Check out the unbelievable images below.
