Video: Trucker rows to safety using excavator after running out of fuel

This trucker came up with a novel plan for getting his truck back home after running out of diesel…

If you’ve ever run out of fuel while driving you’ll know how much of a pain it is to get back on the road. You have to either walk a couple of kilometres to the nearest petrol station or call someone for help. However, walking a few kilometres or calling the AA takes up precious time.

The trucker in the video below obviously didn’t have the time to wait around for help, so instead, he hopped into the excavator that was being transported on the truck’s trailer and used the scoop to push the truck to safety while his buddy steered the cab.
