An Interesting Evening...Not How I'd Planned at All!

First...Everyone is okay and this is NOT my car. It IS, however, my front yard.
Second...I apologize for the quality of the photos...but it was dark out - after 8p.m.
I edited the brighteness and contrast as much as possible...This is the retaining wall in front of my house. The street runs uphill from left to right as you look at this photo...

And from the back...

Tow truck drivers are amazing people...I have 9 other photos that show him getting this girl's car out of the flower bed.

Wow! Did she go in reverse from the street to get there? Or, did she somehow jump the wall from below?

I bet she was very scared! I'm glad everyone is OK.

The explanation I was given was she had parked the car on the hill with the emergency brake ON. Somehow the car rolled back down the hill. She said she was not in the car. She was more afraid of her parents wrath! (a young gal at best in her early 20s)

Yikes! Don't they tell you in drivers ed that you should turn your front wheels to the right and set the emergency brake when you park uphill? Of course, I took drivers ed 25 years ago so I could be remembering wrong. . . . .

Good grief, that's like a 4 foot retaining wall?!?! Did she back off or go up it? If she went up, there had to be some speeding involved.

That must have been some high-octane gas to get the car that high up!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
