Weird accident in parking lot recorded by dash-cam

What happened ?

Among the many dash-cam videos posted on YouTube, this is one of the few which left us baffled.

You certainly have seen your fair share of clips recorded by dashboard-mounted cameras, but this one is a bit of a mystery because we don't understand why the accident happened. The collision took place in a tight parking lot where a woman driving a Hyundai Getz had a frontal impact with the car in which the camera was mounted.

As you can see from the video, the women entered the parking lot and kept accelerating until the collision. She wasn't wearing the seatbelt so her head hit the windscreen and it took her a few seconds until she got back on the driver's seat.

There are a few explanations that come to our mind, such as the sun blocking her view, a medical issue, DUI or unintended acceleration which seems to be the most plausible.

Think she needs her eyesight tested! Also that Hyundai i20(?) just took off and didn't offer any help / be a witness.

dunno - she is sat upright and holding the wheel and steers the car into the road. what you can tell tho is that she is not wearing a seatbelt - silly woman.

After checking out the video in slow motion, I believe she was looking in the interior rearview mirror.
