A Mercedes was on a splashy ride of its own when it hydroplaned through a water-covered road and zoomed into a gas station, hitting a fuel pump and a blue pickup parked near by.

The collision that took place in the UK was posted on social media by a man who happened to capture the incident. In the video, the black Mercedes can be seen emerging from a far left lane and hitting a section of water-covered road. The driver seems to have lost the control of the car shortly after that and the car takes a turn of about 90 degrees.

There's another whirl in the opposite direction as the car nears the fuel station and slides towards the pump with all its force. The Mercedes narrowly misses two vehicles on its way to the gas station but ends up losing control entirely as it enters the fuel station and hits the pump head on.
