TRUCKED UP! Watch This F-250 Save a Sinking Hummer

The Hummer H1 is a legendary vehicle that has proudly served our military for decades, providing reliable transportation in the worst of environments.  But that doesn’t make them indestructible, especially when a civilian drives one through a ridiculously deep mud hole and gets himself in a serious predicament.

Thankfully, a good Samaritan comes along to save the day with his F-250 diesel.  After literally sliding around in the mud for a few minutes, the big Ford manages to save the sunken GM product.  And he does it in conditions so slippery the cameraman almost fell just trying to shoot the video.

Perhaps the funniest part of the video, other than seeing a guy with too much money thinking that his Hummer is invincible get stuck, is that there are clearly “Road Closed” signs on each corner surrounding the giant mud hole.  Makes you wonder if the driver chose to ignore them, or if they appeared after he fell in.

If they were, his negligence certainly made him internet famous, if nothing else.  No matter how capable of an off-roader you own, there is an obstacle out there that can (and will) eventually stop you in your tracks.  When that day comes, if you’re lucky, there will be a guy driving a Ford nearby with a tow strap.
