At least(?) the SUV looks like it's already been wrecked before the flatbed operator drops it on its ass. Or maybe that's just damage from previous attempts to get it on the tray. If it wasn't a total loss before it got picked up, it sure is now.

Disasters like this are better incentive to stay out of "Tow Away" zones than the fines they threaten.
