A 63 year old woman behind the wheel of a Lincoln Navigator caused a huge accident in downtown Mississauga, Ontario.

The crash occurred during the evening rush hour when no less than 16 cars (plus the Lincoln Navigator) were involved in an accident described by a witness as "like something out of Grand Theft Auto" while a CityTV news anchor characterized the incident like it was from a movie set. Another witness told CityTV "I see this gigantic black SUV start ramming through everyone, reverse back and ram again until...this happened."

The good news is nobody was seriously injured as all of those who were sent to the hospital were released within the same evening. Police said airbag deployments were the cause of scratches, bruises and bumps.

The police authorities ruled out the possibility of driving under influence and also the woman is said to have no pre-existing medical condition. The Lincoln Navigator will be mechanically inspected as a brake failure might have caused the accident.
