This is probably not the best place to park your car and a lesson that when you park near the sea to always pull the hand-brake. Yesterday afternoon passers-by in the centre of Korcula were left scratching their heads as a car slowly made its way, seemingly under its own steam, into the Adriatic. The Mazda was left half floating in the sea.
“No one seemed to notice as the car slowly edged towards the harbour and before we realised the car was in the car and dropping into the sea,” explained an observer.
Apparently the driver of the male driver of the car had stopped by the quay side to buy movie tickets and had forgotten to pull the handbrake. As he appeared from the cinema he found his car bobbing with the boats in the Korcula harbour. Fortunately there was no one in the car when the accident occurred.
Later in the afternoon cranes arrived on the scene to fish the soaked Mazda from its watery grave. Apart from water damage the car was relatively unscathed. We only wonder whether the driver was buying movie tickets for the latest instalment in the Ice Age series – Collision Course!
