MADRID, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Porsche 911 owned by a soccer player with a Spanish premier league team was damaged by a parking valet who used it for a short -- and expensive -- joyride.

The valet at Soko restaurant in Madrid reportedly called friends and offered to take them for a ride after he was entrusted with the car while its owner, Javier Casquero, was in the restaurant, The Guardian reported Monday.

The valet jumped in the driver's seat and two others entered the expensive automobile before the valet floored the pedal and immediately lost control of the car. The Porsche slammed into six parked cars, including a BMW and a Mercedes, before stopping, the newspaper reported

The driver was reported to have minor injuries after the incident and his two friends were said to be unharmed.

Casquero, a member of Getafe, didn't seem too worried about the future of his damaged automobile.

"These things happen," he said in The Guardian. "That's what insurance is for."
