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.
