(Scroll down for video) An elderly man in Germany, who took a wrong turn, decided to drive his car down a flight of stairs, destroying it in the process, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.
The video that was posted on Facebook by Bjorn Knorst, shows the 71-year-old owner of the black shiny car driving down a steep cement staircase at the Ravelin V park in Saarlouis.
After taking a wrong turn, the driver stopped for a moment to decide how to deal with the situation. Apparently, he decide to try driving down the stairs rather than take the longer straight route.
The car bounced violently down the steep stairs, but it managed to get to the bottom. The rainy weather contributed to the situation, causing the roads to be extremely slippery.
There are warnings signs in the surrounding streets, telling people that the roads are slippery when it rains, but the driver ignored them.
The car suffered thousands of dollars in damages as a result of driving down the flight of stairs. The video went viral on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than one million times.
The video has also been shared 10,000 times.
