Hero Stranger Drives Forklift And Rescues Driver Trapped In Flipped Over Car After Crash

On December 1, 2017, strangers witnessed a Mercedes Benz crash and flip upside down. A dozen or so people ran over to help turn the car right-side up in order to free the trapped driver.

A construction worker was close by and saw the men struggling to turn the car over. That’s when he hopped into his forklift and drove it over. He used the machine to flip the car back on its wheels.

The accident occurred in Brooklyn, New York, and a bystander recorded the amazing footage of people coming to the driver’s aid.

As you’ll see in the video below, the luxury car is flipped over and the driver’s side is on the pavement.

About a dozen men surround the car and try to push it back on all four wheels to rescue the driver.

Police officers were on the scene and an ambulance was still on the way as the men did everything they could to get the driver out — including climbing on the car and going through the passenger door.

After a several minutes of no results, the construction worker drove his forklift over to help the men. It took some time, but the forklift was finally able to maneuver the car and the men flip it over on its wheels.
