I know we’ve all thought it. If you’re old enough, you remember it from the “Dukes Of Hazard“. I also remember trying the jump in Grand Theft Auto. Well, if you ever thought about it – don’t. When this Florida Man approached the car carrier with its ramp down, well, we’re not sure what he was thinking.

This from Venice FL Fire Rescue : “Venice Fire Rescue received a call around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday for a vehicle accident near the intersection of Pinebrook Rd. and Pinebrook Way. A Nissan Maxima traveling south on Pinebrook Rd. drove up a car carrier and crashed near the top, leaving it hanging over the edge precariously close to falling off.”

When the crews arrived on scene, the Florida man was still sitting in the car. He was not injured but was instructed to stay in the car until Fire Rescue could stabilize the vehicle. According the Venice Fire Rescue “The driver was cited by VPD for careless driving.”

What’s unclear is whether or not he did this intentionally. Was he trying to jump his Nissan Maxima over the car carrier? Did he not see it? Unless the Venice Police Department gets us a follow up we’ll never know if the Florida Man Car Carrier Jump was intentional. What we do know, is that it didn’t work.
