Australia. The bus with the nuns almost fell off the slope, and the driver hit the gas instead of the brake

A woman driving a vehicle full of aged nuns pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake. The car stopped on a tree trunk, which prevented it from falling off the slope. Although one of the passengers is in serious condition, rescuers at the scene say that the battered women were lucky.

Paramedics at the scene of the accident said the fact that the car did not fall off the slope but stopped on a stump might indicate “divine intervention.” According to information from the Nine News television station, a group of nuns aged 82 to 100 were returning from a one-day trip to the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary Institute in Mulgoa.

Gas pedal instead of brake

When the car pulled into a parking lot in Sydney, the 46-year-old driver had to press the gas pedal instead of the brake. The vehicle overturned the post and hit the tree trunk, which prevented it from falling off the slope. As a result of the accident, five nuns were injured. “The 100-year-old nun is in a serious condition, and the 83-year-old woman with serious head injuries was transported to the hospital by plane” – reported the Sky News portal Australia.

A representative of the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary Institute on Thursday 10 November told Nine News that one nun remained at the hospital, the others returned home in the morning. “These women are pioneers, many of them have come to Australia as missionaries,” she added, noting that they now need “some peace, understanding and compassion from the whole community.”
