This car's all wet

A Windsor, Ontario student driver will never forget his first driving lesson. [Postmedia News]  He put the car in reverse but instead of pressing the brake his foot depressed the accelerator and the car roared backwards through a wooden fence into a private swimming pool.

No humans were harmed but the car drowned.

If only it had floated the company could have used the car's floatation ability as a selling point.

$100,000 worth of damages when a 17-year-old smashed her speeding car into two cars, a boat and a house in Barrie, Ontario. [Postmedia News]. 

Police speculate that the teen was texting on her phone while at the same time attempting to pick up a cat that was loose in the car.

The moral of this story? Cats don't take lightly to you stopping them texting.
