Mercedes Benz SUV gets stuck on stairs at UBC (VIDEO)


Well, oops! A Mercedes Benz SUV managed to get stuck on some stairs on the UBC campus Sunday morning, and it was a bit of a challenge to get the vehicle un-stuck.

It’s not clear how the driver of the car managed to get sufficiently off course to wind up going down a flight of concrete stairs near the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. It’s safe to say this is not one of the school’s most ideal shortcuts for drivers.

Passers-by and the car’s occupants took some time to get the car off the stairs, according to The Ubyssey.

Here’s some quick video of some of that process:


And, yes…eventually they got the SUV off the stairs.
