Women Looking For Candles Wreck Car, Keep Looking For Candles Anyway

Now that's a really wrong turn.

These must be some seriously great candles.

Footage posted on YouTube shows a driver and her passenger so intent on finding a candle shop that they drove right over the edge of a loading dock:

As the dash-cam clip comes to an end ― with the car smoking, according to one of the voices on the recording ― one of the women can be heard calling out to a passerby not for help with the car... but help finding the candle shop.

To be fair to the driver, the loading dock is not especially well-marked, which is made even worse by the rain.

Naturally, there is some debate on social media over the audio, which may have been dubbed from an unrelated clip or even faked altogether.

However, BangShift said the clip was featured on “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” and the women were interviewed about the accident.

They said that clanging noise after the fall was the driveshaft, but there’s no word on whether the car was totaled or repaired, the website said.

Several redditors also claimed to have found the location of the accident, which does indeed appear to be located near a candle supply store.

Watch the video in its entirety above.
