Gold Coast woman reverses over edge of multi-level car park

A WOMAN found herself in an awkward position yesterday after reversing off a multi-level car park on the Gold Coast.

The young driver of the new 4WD reversed over a standard concrete wheel stop on the lower level basement car park at Oasis Shopping Centre in Broadbeach around 5.30pm on Thursday.

The rear of the vehicle came to rest in the Woolworths Loading Dock below, with the front wheels becoming caught on the upper level.


Still inside the drivers seat and now facing the ceiling, an ambulance spokesperson said the woman was able to free herself with assistance of passersby before help arrived.

No one was injured during the incident and the driver did not need to be transported to hospital.

The car was later towed from the shopping centre. The woman had only purchased the car a few weeks prior to Thursday’s mishap.
