Thief Did Not Master Truck Gear Change Leading To A Low-Speed Police Chase

It seems that changing gears is very complex

Updated July 5, 2017

Remember that guy from the other day who stole a freaking Ferrari but did not have any money to fill it up with gas. Well, there is someone at least as dumb and his name is Randy Dewayne Vert. A 29-year-old man tried to steal a truck which led to a low-speed police chase in Pinson, Alabama.

After stealing the truck Dewayne had a tough time finding the gears. So, he did not know how to change to second and thus he limited his top speed to 30ish mph. Of course, putting a whole lot of strain on the transmission in the process. In an effort to stop the man from escaping with a Kenworth T-300 flatbed delivery truck, deputies followed the truck along the I-59 south to Bush Boulevard. Low-speed police chase indeed.

Low-speed police chase ended after transmission seized

Of course, stopping a truck is not an easy task. Furthermore, intricacies of the advanced transmission system were too much for Randy to master. The transmission finally seized after some time making the truck undrivable. A low-speed police chase ended abruptly.

The guy was charged with a first-degree theft of property and he was jailed at Jefferson County jail only hours after the arrest.

I do not have spare time. All there is is car time. 12 years and counting. I am a Central European gearhead, but you are probably thinking - aaa a disposable Borg drone! Well, actually, I like to dress up like James Bond too. The only thing I need to be him is an Aston Martin (and I love DBS more than DB5 because, reasons). That's something I guess.
