And it looks slow from afar but when right next to it and with said rear tire turning 2 feet from your head...
You even see the guy trying to jump on and bailing at the last second.
I'd say they handled it pretty smart. Secure the area, let it run into something solid or put something massive in its path. No use to lose a life/limb to save an SX4 and a Corolla (disclosure: I drive an SX4). And if it was my crew, somebody would be getting a stern talk about trying to jump on a moving tractor.
If any emergency personnel would try to jump on that tractor in an attempt to stop it they would be promptly fired or suspended in my town.
Your safety comes first. Even if it was the last John Deere in existence.
No one needs heroes, that's what insurance companies are for.
When will Ricky Rescues finally learn...
Any one who thinks it would have been "easy" to jump in and stop this thing should go find a J.D. dealer and go stand next to one of these. Now imagine it motoring around in a circle at something a bit faster than a walking pace. I know I would think twice.
lol....That is two Minutes away from my House!!!!
I drive my RC cars there after hours with my buddies, it's really big, open & smooth!
Some kids probably read online on how to hot-wire one but didnt car to learn how to stop it once moving, lol...
Good thing no one got Hurt!!!!!
