In a bizarre mishap, a woman has somehow managed to drive her SUV down a set of stairs at Sheraton Wall Centre.

The cringe-worthy incident was captured by Ian Lampman around 8:00 a.m. on Friday, July 19, while he was at work in downtown Vancouver.

The video first shows the car stopped on the stairs. The woman then opens her door and yells to a passer-by, “I can’t see.”

Meanwhile, people can be heard laughing in the background at the amazing situation they are witnessing.

Presumably not knowing what else to do the woman continues to drive her car down the stairs, slowly scraping the undercarriage as she goes.

She eventually makes it back down to Hornby Street, and safely uses her turn signal before driving off.

If the woman were hoping to keep this little mishap to herself, she’d be sadly mistaken.

The video has already been shared more than 14,000 times and counting.

Vancouver Police Department say they are looking into the incident.

“The VPD is aware of this incident and our Collision Investigation Unit is looking into it to determine the exact circumstances,” Constable Steve Addison told Vancouver Is Awesome.

“Once we have all the facts we will decide what enforcement action, if any, is appropriate.”
