Car crashes into wall after Newry driver forgets to put on handbrake
Police have issued a warning to drivers to remember to always firmly apply their handbrake when parking a car.
It comes after a car rolled down a hill and crashed into a wall in Newry after the driver forgot to put on the handbrake.
The car travelled across a junction and crashed into the wall of a nearby home.
A PSNI spokesperson said it was lucky that no pedestrians or road users were injured.
"Rule number one when parking on a hill, always make sure you firmly apply the handbrake," the spokesperson said.
"Unfortunately this was not the case for a motorist today in Newry. As seen below, the runaway vehicle travelled downhill across a junction and collided with a wall of nearby residence causing significant damage.
"Thankfully no pedestrians or other road users were injured, however the owner of the vehicle will now have to foot a costly repair bill to fix the wall!"
