Car wash “calamity” as unlicensed valet hits gas not brake

A student driver at a car wash in Brampton accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes as he took a Ford Expedition out of the wash for a final shine. The car bounded out of the property, through a fence and across a road. The SUV is said to be totaled. Nadia Gangoo said it happened on Friday morning — her birthday — when she and her husband Ian had taken her vehicle to Super Suds Car Wash on Hurontario Street for a VIP Super Clean wash. The irony is obvious. But, Super Suds is saying that its insurance will cover the cost of the damaged car.
