This may be the slowest hit-and-run of all time.

Police in Alberta, Canada are investigating parking lot surveillance video after footage of an incompetent driver — "Calgary's Worst Driver" — was posted online Thursday and quickly went viral.

The potential crime occurs a mere 20 seconds into the video, when the driver of the silver BMW SUV backs into the red car, seen below.

But that collision isn't what brought the video to viral fame — it's the fact that the video drags on for another excruciating 4 minutes.

Watch below as the hapless motorist does a complete loop of the parking lot in an attempt to pull out — and watch for the moment when the apparent owner of the red car shows up and sees the damage after the silver SUV driver pulls away:

In the YouTube comments section, the Calgary police YouTube account has the top comment, writing:

After conducting some inquiries we have determined that this collision was reported to us at the time. We are very interested in following up on this video.  We ask that the person who captured it, along with any other owners/witnesses please contact 403-266-1234.

The Calgary Sun reported late Friday that police had identified the driver responsible and that criminal charges may be issued against him or her.

On YouTube and Reddit, commenters marveled at the terrible driving, with some resorting to bad driver stereotypes — there was substantial debate over whether the driver was a man or woman — and others speculating that the person much have been drunk or high.

"[The driver was] probably driving drunk while using a custom etch-a-sketch steering wheel mod," one commenter on Reddit suggested.

Multiple commenters asked, verbatim, "How the f**k did this person get their license?"

Back on YouTube, commenter Burger responded to the Calgary police with a plea: "It's your duty to find out who it is and ban that person from driving for life."
