A confused driver has ended up trapping his car on the steps of Chaussee d’Antin-La Fayette metro station in Paris, after mistaking it for the entrance to an underground car park.

“There’s a sign saying <<Haussmann Parking>> right in front… I made a mistake,” the driver – identified only as Johan – told the AFP news agency.

Johan, 26, managed to brake in time to stop the vehicle, leaving the back wheels sticking out.

No-one was hurt in the incident, which immediately drew a crowd of onlookers.

Many took pictures of the car – a Dacia Duster – stranded on the stairs at the Chaussee d’Antin-La Fayette metro station.

The driver was later asked by French police to do an alcohol test, which he passed.

A member of staff at a local restaurant was quoted by AFP as saying that a similar incident took place at the site about five years ago.
