BERLIN (AP) — An 80-year-old woman took an unintended short cut as she tried to drive her car out of a multistory car park in western Germany, breaking though the building's wall and landing on a convertible parked 3 meters (10 feet) below.

Police said that neither the driver nor her 85-year-old husband, who was standing next to the car at the time, was hurt in the accident in Bottrop late Monday.

It happened as the driver was trying to maneuver her car out of a parking space. For reasons that remain unclear, she hit the building's outside wall and broke through it.

The fire service used a ladder to free the woman from her car. Police say the accident caused damage of about 25,000 euros ($27,900).
