A $60,000 Mercedes-Benz SUV was totaled just 60 seconds into a woman's test drive in Virginia Friday.
The driver had just climbed into a brand new Mercedes-Benz GLE350 at an Arlington dealership when, one minute in, disaster struck.
The Arlington Fire Department tweeted photos of the $60,000 vehicle on its side in the dealership parking lot.

WTTG-TV reported that the luxury vehicle first hit four other cars in the lot, including the SUV that already belonged to the woman driving. The driver was not seriously injured.
An employee at the dealership said the woman stepped on the gas pedal, presumably when she meant to reach for the brake.
