Guaranteeing a story to be told over and over again when the girl becomes a teenager and asks for driving lessons, her 32-year-old mother said a huge kick from the baby caused the accident.
Swiss police said the woman was driving along a country road near Basel, Switzerland, when the sharp kick in her side caused her such pain that she lost control of the car.
She veered off the road, hit a lamppost, causing the car to turn on its side and career into a garden fence where it came to a halt.
The car was so badly damaged that a passer-by had to help the woman get out through the boot of the car.
She was slightly injured and taken to hospital for checks – the baby was perfectly alright, which is more than can be said for the car.
