Jeep Wrangler With Two Wheels In The Air Escapes Tow Truck In Chicago!


Read more

Picking up and towing cars from the street is not unusual, but towing them while there's a person inside definitely is.

And that's just half the story because the guy inside the Wrangler did not want to abandon his car and with the help of the Jeep's all-wheel drive system, made a successful getaway with everything caught on film.

We don't know if the car was being towed for a traffic violation or if it was being repossessed, but doing so with someone inside doesn't sound legal, now, does it…

The YouTube editor who uploaded the video, Tony Marengo, said:

"We are used to seeing cars get towed out of the Walgreens lot next door with lightning speed (Clark & Ontario). Usually NOT WITH A PERSON IN THE CAR, though. And this guy definitely didn't want to get towed..."

You can say that again, Tony!
