It’s bad enough that this relatively well-kept C5 Chevrolet Corvette was wrecked when its owner crashed into the median strip of a busy highway, but then it was set upon by what must be the world’s worst tow truck driver. We must warn you that watching this video might be a little painful for car lovers, Corvette fans or not.

The initial impact of the crash was so severe that it managed to shear off the spokes of one the Corvette’s wheels. We don’t get to see the rest of the damage except for what the incompetent tow truck driver executes.

Not having a proper flatbed truck, the driver extends a ‘claw’ to grab onto the rear undercarriage of the Corvette but fails several times. Needless to say, there are much better ways to handle someone’s pride and joy.
