Car Rolls Back off of Tow Truck Bed


Recommended Posts

This is a great training video. In all my years, I've never seen both tow truck and loaded vehicle roll in opposite directions. From what I see ... it especially addresses the issues of:

1)  driving a vehicle onto a carrier's deck

2)  no topside safety strap(s)

3)  no chock blocks against the carrier's tires

4)  failing to set the carrier's emergency brake

5)  the dangers of chasing a rolling tow truck.


Yeah ... it's appropriate to say that the tow God's were with this guy this day.     R.

... it does appear that there was a loose-strap at the driver's front, but an unattached strap doesn't hold any value nor does it hold a loose SUV.


For me ... I'm entertained at the 33-second mark that includes a double, "WTF", head-scratching moment from the Lookie-Loo's on-scene.

I've witnessed a double nose picking before, but this is the first double head scratching incident I've ever seen.    R.
