Watch as this technician does all he can to stop a Honda Jazz from rolling off his recovery truck

Video: Panic as mechanic gets dragged off truck by runaway car
Tough day at work: Mechanic desperately tries to stop the car.

This is the amusing moment that a mechanic realised he didn’t properly secure a customer’s vehicle that he was recovering from the roadside.

The clip, which is thought to have been filmed in Scotland, shows the car suddenly begin to roll back off the truck.

The mechanic’s instinct is to grab the front of the Jazz with one hand but soon realises it’s not enough to stop the car from rolling.

Panicking, he tries to hold onto the truck with his other hand but gets dragged along with the vehicle which only comes to a halt once it’s off the truck.

The man then gets up and has a quick look around as he casually fetches the winch again.

The footage is filmed from a computer screen and shows a woman, thought to be the vehicle owner, approach the man after the incident.

  3. Without training, that’s obvious. I hope his boss watches this video, corporate manslaughter no joke. Get trained and keep safe.

  5. Many years ago we had a Citroen XM deliverd to us on a tilt & slide recovery truck. I strapped the wheels, tilted the bed and the car rolled straight off the back and dropped from 2 feet off the back. The only visible damage was the number plate.
