Chinese Woman drives Mercedes-Benz CLS into a Canal

Punks crashing supercars? Just unfortunate incidents. It is women who are the the biggest danger in Chinese traffic today. Just last week we saw one mating a Porsche, and today we have a super smarty who drove her Mercedes-Benz CLA into a canal.


The accident happened in the great city of Wuxi in Jiangsu Province. It is a classic. The Benz was parked on a lot near the waterside. The woman wanted to leave and set the automatic gearbox in Drive instead of Reverse, and hit the pedal to the metal. Blub.


The woman wears a short blue skirt and has her hair dyed red. Amazingly, she managed to get out and climb on the roof without getting wet, using the sunroof. Friendly onlookers threw her a lifebuoy, but she refused, claiming shoe couldn’t swim. Police then threw her a line and got her back on shore.


The CLA sunk and must be assumed dead. Not a cheap drowning!, base price in China is 286.000 yuan or 46.090 USD.


The little lady, with her skirt  dry as a desert, chatting away with a SWAT officer, who apparently was involved in the rescue operation.

    Looks like she chose the wrong lane and ended up on the faecal freeway.

    It’s definitely CLA, not CLS. Nice stunt though.

    It’s definitely a CLA, the reverse lamp and turn signals are on the bottom part of the taillamp while on the CLS they’re in the middle. I miss the days when models in a brand’s car lineup were easily distinguishable from each other.

    Thanks everybody. A CLA it is. Changed!

    Right away shouldn’t there have been a Prince Charming willing to jump in and rescue the Damsel in distress?
    Perhaps the canal water quality dampened any thoughts of heroic chivalry……
