Teenage learner driver accidentally plunges car into canal killing herself and two others after mistaking accelerator for brake

A teenage learner driver killed herself and two others, after mistaking accelerator for brake and plunging into canal. The car fell more than 10 feet before it landed upside down in the water - with the force of the impact believed to have knocked all four people on board unconscious.
Locals frantically jumped in and tried to smash the windows and rescue them as they slowly submerged under the water.
Tragically only one was rescued - and the other three died.
Reports said the 19-year-old girl - identified by her surname Wu - only had a learner’s licence and still needed to be accompanied by an adult. She was reportedly driving her father’s car with her dad, 51, in the passenger seat and her sister, 16, and another friend, 17, in the back as they set off.
Wu’s sister showed weak vital signs and was rushed to a local hospital, where she is said to be in a coma.
The tragedy occured in the township of Dongfeng - which is in Zhongshan City in Guangdong Province in southern China.
