Getting towed ain’t fun. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do once it starts — sure, you can sit in the car and try to wait it out, but at some point, you’re going to need to piss (and you can only do that in your car so many times before it becomes a health hazard).
Still, that doesn’t stop some people from trying to wriggle out of a tow. Like this woman, who decided to try to drive off while her car was attached to a tow truck.

As you can see, her attempt didn’t go too hot. After running the wheels for a few seconds, the car’s center of balance is thrown off, causing it to tip over. “Got it all on camera,” the tow truck driver/videographer says. “All this instead of just paying $63.”
Her engine is toast too. The oil pickup is starved sitting on its side while running. Every bearing in that engine is done. There goes $20k plus the body work.— Dan (@Dudemanbro123) November 19, 2023
As the video continues, the woman can be seen exiting the vehicle, totally unassisted by the man filming the whole thing. Her car is clearly also having some issues that extend beyond the bodywork, shooting out white smoke while the woman fails to get out of the car.
Naturally, plenty of people posted Jeep roasts in response to this video. “It’s a Jeep. It was bound to roll over sooner than later,” wrote one user. “Jeeps come totaled in base model,” added another.
Next time, maybe just let the tow happen — after all, things could have gone much worse.
