    What are the most embarrassing mistakes you have made? Mistaken a stranger for a person you know? A woman from China seems to have beaten the lot.

    A woman slammed on the brakes in Guizhou just to find she mistook the buttocks of a golden monkey for a red light, Sin Chew Daily reported.

    The abrupt braking caused another car to hit hers.

    The monkey, which at the scene of the accident was merrily sitting on a traffic light pole, made the witnesses’ jaws drop. It appeared to have escaped from a nearby circus. 

    The circus manager agreed to cover the accident victims' repair expenses.
