Perhaps it wanted to go green.

In Paris, an accident led to a fascinating photo op - a car jammed into the steps of the Chaussee d'Antin La Fayette Metro station. The driver (who is fine, incidentally) mistook the steps for underground parking. "I made a mistake," a distraught Johan told AFP. Luckily, no one was hurt and the car was quickly returned to level ground. According to AFP, a waiter at a nearby restaurant said this same thing happened a couple of years ago.
