Officer Forgets To Pull The Handbrake, Patrol Car Ends Up In A Ditch

In rural Romania, cars appear to have developed a mind of their own. Well, actually they haven’t; like many other accidents, this one was caused by a human error.

The short video shows a police officer pulling over on the side of the road. The man then leaves the car, a first-gen Dacia Logan, and a few seconds later, the vehicle starts heading towards the ditch, just as a horse-pulled carriage approaches.

A Good Samaritan can be seen trying to give a helping hand, as he attempts to stop the police cruiser using his hands. But it was already too late, as the laws of physics prevented him from doing so, and the inevitable happened.

Luckily, nobody was injured, as the road was pretty much empty at the time and the only damages sustained by the Dacia were on the front left side, which absorbed most of the impact.

It appears that this incident took place almost two years ago, despite being shared on YouTube recently. We don’t know if the officer had to pay for the repairs, or if he was in any way reprimanded by his superiors. In any case, he’ll probably have learned his lesson: never, ever leave any car without having engaged the handbrake (and a gear in a manual, or Parking in an auto ‘box, just to make sure).

    PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

    Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market
