Nervous newbie driver smashes into restaurant in China after mistakenly accelerating

Shocking video from Mianyang City in southern China shows a nervous newbie driver plunging a car into a restaurant after he mistook the accelerator for the brake.

The CCTV footage shows several waiters sitting around a dining table looking at their phones during their break when a white car suddenly smashes through the restaurant windows and stops right beside them.

According to reports, the car driver had only had his licence for a month and was not familiar with his new car. The driver got nervous when turning a corner and pressed the accelerator instead of the brake by mistake.

Fortunately, no one was injured. The case was being investigated.
