Learning how to drive is one of the most important rites of passage for a teenager — and often results in embarrassing mishaps. Unfortunately for one teen driver, cell phone footage has preserved his first major accident for all to see. Now, the TikTok clip of the boy hitting multiple cars in a Walmart parking lot is spreading like wildfire across the internet.
An Incident at Walmart
The footage was shared across multiple TikTok uploads from user @cookierunthangs, a.k.a. Cookie Rambo, on December 26. The video begins as the unidentified teen apologizes for hitting Rambo’s car.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to, this is my mom’s car,” the teen boy tells Rambo, who immediately asks for insurance information. Damage is visible on the woman’s car as onlookers confirm that the boy scraped into it.
Instead of providing insurance information, the teen boy gets back into the car before seeming to attempt a getaway. However, after leaving the parking spot, his car is seen rocketing forward into the back of a blue pickup truck.
“What the hell are you doing?” Rambo asks the teen as he flees from the scene into a nearby nail salon. A subsequent video shows that the teen hit a third car that was parked next to the blue pickup as well.
Rambo later told WKRG news that she had been checking out at a nearby Dollar Tree when a witness told her her car had been hit.
“After confronting the 17 y/o, he lied and said he didn’t hit my car,” she continued. “While listening to witnesses tell me otherwise, he attempts to elude the scene of the wreck. He then hits two more PARKED cars during his failed escape.”
According to Rambo, the unlicensed teen ran into the nearby nail salon to alert his grandmother to what he had done.
WKRG reported that police were called to the scene of the incident. However, since the collisions happened on private property, they did not make a report.
Luckily for Rambo, the lack of a police report will mean that her auto insurance will cover all the damages to her car. As for the still-unidentified teen, his big mistake — and valuable learning experience — will remain online for the world to witness for years to come.
