Learner driver takes wrong turn during lesson - Austria

One 'L' of a manoeuvre

Whoops /Europics
A learner driver took a wrong turn during her driving lesson in Austria - straight into a fast flowing river.
Christina Ritter, 17 - from Schladming - had just crossed a bridge over the River Enns with her firefighter dad Ralph in the passenger street when she suddenly swerved straight back to the bank.
Her father's colleagues rescued the pair after they realised they were trapped in the river and dialled 999.
"They'd gone over the bridge and for some reason the car did a U-turn at high speed and bounced down the embankment into the water," said one eye-witness.
