In a now-viral TikTok, a woman says she “heard a huge car crash” near her home while waiting for her meal to be delivered and discovered her DoorDash driver had crashed.
In the video posted by Karlie Nonu (@karkarnonu) on Wednesday, she shows a screenshot of the DoorDash in-app driver tracker showing her driver being pulled over a block from her home. The text overlay reads, “I heard a HUGE car crash outside my house while waiting for my DoorDash order. Turns out my DoorDash driver crashed.”
Nonu says she went to the scene of the accident to see if she could still get her delivery, but was reportedly turned away by police.
She shows another screenshot of her message with DoorDash customer service asking if the driver is okay. A DoorDash customer support rep says the accident “wasn’t that serious” but “can’t deliver the order.”
However, in an additional text overlay, Nonu claims that “the driver’s entire car is perched on top of a chain link fence.”

The video is captioned: “Just an average day in the neighborhood. Just trying to get my DoorDash order,” and has amassed over 61,400 views as of Thursday.
Several commenters shared that they had been in similar accidents while working as drivers for food delivery apps.
“I used to deliver with DoorDash. I have sometimes spent long nights. My GPS took me down an unlit road and even with the lights on I missed a huge pothole!” wrote one user.
“I accidentally backed into a parked car while doing DoorDash,” said another.
“I got hit by a car while making my first Postmates order and I broke a few bones and ruptured my organs,” added a third, “had to learn to walk again and made $4.”
The Daily Dot reached out to Nonu via TikTok comment and DoorDash via press email.
