Multiple news sources are reporting about an incident involving a German learner driver and a British Challenger tank in Augustdorf, Germany. The 18-year-old driver made the mistake of turning into a column of British tanks that were on the move. The British soldier at the controls of the tank behind her had no time to stop, but managed to turn so that he crushed the engine of the car. The 18-year-old woman, who has not been named under German privacy laws, escaped unharmed. Her Toyota hatchback did not fare so well against the 62-tonne Challenger tank, being completely flattened forward of the steering wheel. The area where the accident took place is well known for tank convoys passing through. British army bases at Herford and Paderborn are nearby, and it is used as a military training area by the German army and its Nato allies.
