U-Haul Truck in Pool Due to Shoelace

You don’t see this every day, even in Vegas. A moving truck in Las Vegas ended up in an empty swimming pool due to the driver’s shoelace catching on the accelerator. While repairs to the truck were estimated at $3,000, we’d imagine the pool will need some work as well.

Police were called to the back yard of a Las Vegas home to help a tow truck driver hoist a U-Haul truck out of an empty swimming pool.

Big Valley Towing posted a video to Facebook showing truck with a large pulley being used to hoist the U-Haul out of the pool. The company said the driver’s shoelace became stuck on the accelerator when he was pulling into the driveway and the truck ended up in the backyard pool. Norena said the operation will cost the U-Haul driver about $3,000.


No word of any injuries, so the driver may have come out fine.
