A Chinese woman from Jiangsu Province in eastern China was responsible for a 300,000 yuan ($47,173) car accident after crashing her Cadillac into a Range Rover.
According to the South China Morning Post, the woman, identified only by her surname Zhang, attempted to swat a fly that had landed on her left hand and ended up gunning the gas pedal simultaneously, causing her to slam into the Range Rover.
The crash occurred on a street in Taixing last Wednesday night, reported the Modern Express.
Zhang survived the crash, but walked away with serious cuts on her head.
