that's funny, kinda makes me wonder if it was planned though? how many tow trucks have a video camera taping a towed vehicle?

Probably a repo. That might explain the crappy job of hooking it up too.

It was a repo. The truck rolled in and did the snatch and run to get it to the flatbed.

that would make sense as to why the camera would be mounted there also

could be a repo but doesn't look like a repo truck though the vehicle they are pulling is a 4x4 and you "never pull on drive train" obviously the wheels were turned or the steering lock broke looks like bad luck and poor judgment on the tow driver when he hit that wall.

Christians have always been around? My oh my... I'm yet to see a real Christian.

any who, Jews, Catholics, then Christians, Christianity being a rather young religion as far as religions go its not much older than Scientology.
