The motorist has been mocked on social media after photos of the destruction emerged on Saturday. They show the A-Class model suspended off the ground, having mounted the bin on the pavement in Preston Brook, Cheshire.
Cheshire Police say the driver had just bought the automatic car and “mistook reverse and parked on the rubbish bin”.
The collision happened outside a Spar shop in the affluent parish on Saturday morning, reports Daily Star.
Writing on the Daresbury and Windmill Police Facebook page, the force said: “Assisted with a minor RTC (road traffic collision) in Preston Brook this morning.
“A driver who had a newly acquired automatic vehicle mistook drive for reverse and parked on the rubbish bin.
“Apologies if you were unable to access the shops car park whilst we were recovering the vehicle.
“Happily the bin came away mostly unscathed as we managed to pop it back in place. Damage has been reported to the parish council.”
Social media users were quick to tease the dopey driver.
One woman wrote: “His parking is rubbish.”
Another added: “Test results are back. Can a Mercedes fit in a bin? Answer: ‘no’.”
A third joked: “Did you ask the driver where they had bin???”
Another playful comment read: “Will they get a littering fine as well?”
