Take a look at the 'parked' car!

A confused driver has ended up trapping his car on the steps of an underground station in the French capital, Paris.

He managed to brake in time to stop the car, leaving the back wheels sticking out.

Apparently, he mistook it for the entrance to a car park.

"There's a sign saying 'Haussmann Parking' right in front... I made a mistake," the driver told journalists.

No-one was hurt but the scene drew plenty of crowds and cameras.

At least he wasn't trying to take his car on the train!
