Sunk: The accident happened after Angela Castro hit the accelerator rather than the brake as she driving a pick-up alongside instructor Edgardo Aguilera

Taking your driving test is a nerve-wracking experience.
But spare a thought for this hapless learner who failed her test after losing control of her car and crashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Angela Castro, 35, was taking her exam in a pick-up truck in Antofagasta, Chile, when she misjudged a bend and drove straight on instead of applying the brakes, the learner then hit the accelerator pedal, smashing through a metal barrier and diving straight for the ocean.

As the car began to sink into the water examiner, Edgardo Aguilera, managed to scramble free and emerge relatively unscathed.
