Car Thief Leads Police in Slow-Speed Chase Because He Doesn’t Know How to Drive Stick

Recommended Posts

:laughl:Alabama car thief Randy Dewayne Vert is no doubt a shiftless man; one whose attempt last month to evade authorities after stealing a delivery truck fell flat as a pancake because he had no clue how to drive a stick shift. Whoops.

The hilarious incident occurred on June 14, when Jefferson County authorities investigating a report of “suspicious vehicle sitting” were told by a bystander that a man had just stolen a Kenworth T-300 flatbed delivery truck nearby, according to AL.com.

What followed was one of the most stunning — and hilarious — car chases in law enforcement history. Because he had no idea how to switch the truck’s manual transmission out of first gear, Vert wound up cruising the highway at a blistering speed of 30 mph.

Funnily enough this is how I would run from the police. Very slowly. I'm not going to risk hurting others :D

I taught my daughters to drive a Jeep Wrangler with a manual transmission because I thought it was a useful skill. Apparently it is !!!!

Deputies casually :blink: followed the truck along Interstate 59 until its transmission seized and the vehicle came to an abrupt stop.

How did it do that?  I can't shift this transmission so now the transmission is just going to seize up... :blink:

“Thank God he couldn’t find second gear — the pursuit could have gotten all the way up to 35 mph,” he quipped.

Are you sure this isn't something that the Onion couldn't come up with?
