From Viral Viral Videos:
There’s a reason tow truck drivers insist that no one is in the car when they are going to tow it, regardless if they are sent to pick up a broken car or a car illegally parked. Because if the driver is a bit disgruntled, they may attempted something such as this. Brady Miller was out at a strip mall when he saw an SUV being towed with the driver still in the car attempting to drive away. That cannot be good for the transmission.
