Tow Truck Driver Tries To Drive Brakeless Jeep Onto Bed, Underestimates Importance Of Brakes

September 20, 2018

This is a video of a tow truck driver who was called to tow a totaled Jeep (with a back wheel that's barely attached and without brakes -- or "brakes that are probably really shitty" as the guy in the video warns), but couldn't get his truck to the Jeep so decides to drive the Jeep to it. He actually does manage to get the Jeep onto the back of the truck very briefly before it rolls back down the ramp, flips over a ledge losing its already sad wheel, and knocks a natural gas meter off, causing "a large amount of natural gas to leak out." All in all, I say a job well done by my standards.

Keep going for the video of me in every business meeting I've ever attended.

Thanks to HW, who agrees brakes aren't overrated.

    them's the breaks!

    I like when things go horribly, horribly wrong, but everyone's okay at the end! ... maybe 90s sitcoms were on to something 🤔.

    His axle looks like it was going to separate at the beginning and no brakes (with sharp turn)...
    Yet he sees no red flags in this scenario!

    my favorite quote:
    "if you look at life through rose colored glasses,
    red flags just look like flags."

    i don't understand what his plan was once he was on the inclined ramp of the truck

  • GeneralDisorder

    I've never met a tilt-bed owner who liked pulling the winch all the way out.

    I don’t know enough about cars to suggest the parking brake should’ve worked, but I know little enough about cars to think maybe it could work if you pull the e brake hard enough. Yolo.
