The vehicle was left stuck between the first-storey and the ground level. 

The car, which had its front doors open, was hanging by the axle of its back wheels. 

A police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia investigators believe the man confused the accelerator and brake.

The driver was lucky to escape without injury and was not trapped inside the car.  

Port Phillip’s SES unit is working to remove the vehicle but need an engineer to ascertain whether a crane can enter the first floor of the car park in a stable manner.

The only damage to the building was a smashed window.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
