If you’ve never seen a seesaw made out of cars, now’s your chance, as in this hilarious video, a guy tries to reclaim his repossessed truck – and it doesn’t work out well.
The company who towed the truck were a couple of miles down the highway, but the determined owner was not going to let them get away.
He chased the employee of the company down the road in Homestead, Florida, to just off the highway where the unfortunate scene was captured on camera.
Take a look here:
The owner of the truck jumped back inside it – despite the back wheels lifting off the ground as a result of the attached pickup truck which was towing it. The owner can then be seen desperately accelerating in an attempt to make a getaway.
Unfortunately for the driver, the truck’s firmly attached to the pickup by a chain, meaning his attempts fail miserably.
As he accelerates, horrible clunking, grinding metal noises can be heard – the sort which can’t possibly mean good things for a car.
The employees from the towing company can be heard debating what to do, with one saying he’s on the phone to a company while the other films the strange event taking place.
As he pursues his freedom, the truck owner eventually manages to drive the truck forward, so much so, all four wheels are on the ground. This is where the seesaw part comes in.
The truck hits the ground, which causes the pickup to lift dramatically before slamming back down, causing the truck wheels to rise again.
The chain which holds the truck to the pickup remains unbroken, meaning the driver wasn’t going anywhere.
The employees can be heard on the phone again, with one mentioning aggravated assault.
The police then arrive at the scene and arrest the driver, who claims he only returned to his truck to gather some personal belongings he’d left in there before it was taken.
The video was shared online, where the caption read:
Shortly after this vehicle had been taken away from the registered owner, that person chased our employee a couple of miles and then hopped in his pick up truck to supposedly grab some personal belongings.
The rest is what you see on video. Due to a chain being attached to the truck he was not able to drive off. The police showed up and arrested the guy. This video was filmed by the specialized towing crew out of the Miami metro area.
It’s unclear whether the truck driver was charged, but I’m sure he’ll have done enough damage to his truck to have learned his lesson – if he ever sees it again, that is.
