GREAT FALLS, Va. (AP) — One driver may be giving her insurance company an expensive bill after she accidently backed into a nearly $300,000 Ferrari while attempting to parallel park outside a Virginia coffeehouse.

Video being shared online shows the aftermath of the Saturday accident in Great Falls, near Washington, D.C. It shows the rear of the woman's Mercedes convertible sitting on the hood of a Ferrari 458 Speciale with a car alarm blaring. It happened at a weekly meeting of local car enthusiasts. One man asks the woman who was behind the wheel of the Mercedes: "Are you serious?"

Fairfax County police say they helped the drivers exchange information, but no one will be charged.

The Ferrari 458 lists for more than $290,000 and tops out at over 200 miles per hour.
