Watch as a BMW rolls off an HGV in front of new owner causing £1,000s of damage
THE owner of a BMW could only watch in horror as his car rolled off the HGV delivering it. In the video, uploaded to Instagram on the Inside Motors channel, the HGV driver is visibly furious at the incident.
it was a very bad day for the chap delivering this BMWCredit: Instagram – inside motors
The video was captured on the CCTV system of a house across the street and shows a BMW X1 being dropped off. The HGV it’s being delivered on is very large, meaning it is parked at an angle across the road.
The footage starts with the X1 being pushed slowly backwards by the delivery driver. You assume that the X1 is connected to the front of the HGV’s bed via some sort of winch mechanism to slow it down.

But as soon as the X1’s rear wheels hit the slope it starts gathering momentum and the HGV driver realises he’s in trouble. He desperately tries to pull the BMW back, but it’s no use, so he then dives in through the side window. However, he clearly can’t reach the handbrake, so slides back out again, only to watch the BMW slam into a wall.
Meanwhile, the man taking delivery of the X1 is seen running alongside trying to stop it himself.
As the BMW smashes into the wall, it looks as if the wall is pushed over, causing more damage to the red car parked next door. With two cars to repair and a wall to rebuild, the cost of this calamity has run into GBP1,000s. The delivery driver walks away visibly furious at what has just happened.
There was little sympathy for the delivery driver in the comments online.
