CNN’s running video of some clueless guy in a white truck — dragging a trailer with a zero-turn lawn mower on it, no less — leading police on a merry chase. Toolmongers will note that though the trailer fishtails pretty badly, the guy doesn’t lose control until the mower comes loose and slides to the back of the trailer, rendering it un-drivable.
Not to spoil it for everyone, but it ends, um, badly. The trailer jackknifes, the mower hops off and smacks into the truck, and the whole mess grinds to a halt on an overpass. Predictably, the guy runs and is chased down (and arrested) by police.
Lesson learned: Don’t run from the cops — especially in a crappy truck while towing a trailer. But if you do, make sure your mower is tied down firmly. And try to go a little easier on the wheel, yeah?
