Old Ford Van Pushing a Car? You Don’t See This Every Day!

Why are those pallets stacked 15 high?

A fully-loaded van can still push a car home.

This is definitely filed under the “you don’t see this every day!” category. We saw this going down a local highway in Colorado. It appears to be an older and fully-loaded Ford E-series passenger van pushing an Audi A5 on the highway’s shoulder. Yes, the van is actually pushing the car bumper-to-bumper at a relatively slow speed. The van is loaded with lots of wood: sheets of plywood inside and stacked pallets on the roof.

There are many safety and legal concerns here. There are also lots of unanswered questions. Why does the van have wood pallets on the roof that are stacked 15 high? Why aren’t the first stack of pallets actually secured to the van’s roof? The van does not appear to have a hitch, so it cannot technically tow the car. The car appears to be disabled and has broken rear glass.

The car’s trunk is open or it may be damaged by the sheer force of the van pushing the car. It does not appear to a case of road rage because there is no swerving or excessive speed.
