Driver Mistakes Stairs For Underground Parking Ramp, Things Go Horribly Wrong

August 16, 2017

stairway-to-not-heaven.jpg

This is a video from Santiago, Chile, of a driver who mistakes the stairs to an office building for an underground parking ramp, and proceeds to drive down them before realizing the error. They get out, then the car plummets down the stairs into the glass door at the bottom. Thankfully, nobody was injured. Except the car, which the Transformers will be holding a candlelight vigil for following Sunday's monster truck rally at the county fairplex.

Keep going for the security cam footage, as well as an eyewitness cell phone video.

Thanks to Brianna, who's not convinced this driver wasn't just trying to test the offroad capabilities of their SUV.

    forgot to put it park?

    But if the car is going down anyway. Why don't you drive it slowly with the breaks? The "help" here did nothing. Might have parked on the landing

  • motorolo

    it's CHILE you goddam animal.

  • Bling Nye

    So put on a goddamn sweater and quit yer whining! And I swear to god if you touch that thermostat you're grounded for a MONTH.

    Dude guys, you got it all wrong, she's a member of Project Mayhem!

    "Her name is Robert Paulson"

    No E-brake, no setting it to park, no turning the wheels... Nothing. Given it was a Land Rover, it probably could have reversed out as it was, but doubly so given it likely had 4WD.

    What a sight to behold.

    I'm assuming that this lady failed to put her car in park and got out with it in drive?

  • JJtoob

    With how easy the car went, I would say so. At that incline, they should have also used the e-brake but nope.

  • The_Wretched

    And that's why you put concrete pillars in front of stairs where you don't want cars.

    They're called bollards. It's a fun word to say too.

  • Bling Nye

    Nevermind the Bollards, Here's the Sex Prius

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    Thank god she did not set the e-brake

  • curteyeblind

    Another useless land rover in the city and a driver who doesn't know how to use it

  • netloco

    the country of chili... located right next to the country of guacamole

  • And nacholand. Tasty area.

  • steve holt

    Funny how here the news touts "driver makes mistake" but the video from chile begins prominently with "woman driver makes mistake"...

  • So... It wasn't a woman driver who made the mistake? Please clarify. Perhaps "human driver makes mistake" as nowadays you can see dogs driving in some areas of the world and in this way it's non gender based. Shmuck

  • Wonfis

    If you saw "Man driver makes mistake", what would you think? My first thought would be: "Who drives a man?"

  • Ollie Williams

    That's idiocy on so many levels. They should have their license revoked.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Ha! I see what you did there. If they owned a HUMMVEE or a H2 this never would have happened... Because everyone knows Hummers don't fit in underground parking garages.
