A bizarre tug of war broke out between a tow truck and a car which eventually drove off from the hook.

While Christopher Taylor walked Memphis, Tennessee, on December 5, he heard some tyres screeching on a nearby road.

Approaching the sound, he came across a black tow truck and a red car in a bizarre test of strength, with the person sat in the car’s driver’s seat desperate spinning its wheels.

With smoke rising from the road, the car seemingly gets free from one of its shackles, only to get caught on the end of the hook.

Following minutes more struggles, where the tow truck driver is sat in his cab, the car crashes loudly to the ground and manages to escape.

Christopher said: “I had absolutely no idea what was going on, I just had to watch how it played out.”
