Classic.

Guess that operator forgot the basics.
When I drove a wrecker, every roll over would get a safety line, even though my cables all had keepers on the hooks. Weird stuff happens when the line goes slack.... Not to mention always set the e-brake on any recovery.

Not very nice of him to drop the car on it's wheels that hard either... I never dropped one like that, always put myself in a position to actually lower the vehicle rather than dropping it.

I like this one from years ago. Too bad it's a montage and not a continuous video. Still entertaining and hard to believe it really happened.

X2, plus the wrecker's insurance will have to pick up some of the tab on that.
That is better than any joke, as they are only funny once. I have watched that video three times now, and it still makes me laugh.
