Parked car rolls down hill and ends up in a fountain in La Orotava
Residents in La Orotava had a shock yesterday, as a car with no driver came down the hill of Calle Calvario and ended up in the fountain on the roundabout of Plaza La Paz.
The owner of the car, parked it and didn’t put on the handbrake, and after getting out, it started rolling down the slope. They tried to stop it but it built up momentum and continued down the street.
Fortunately no pedestrians, cyclists, or other vehicles got in the way, and after mounting the roundabout it came to a halt in the fountain on the island.
Fortunately, agents of the Local Police of La Orotava who went to the scene confirmed that no personal damages were registered, only material ones to municipal property.
