A FedEx driver's rough morning has led to a viral video but, thankfully, no injuries.
Surveillance camera footage uploaded to YouTube on Thursday shows a FedEx van driving down a street and out of the camera frame. Moments later, the truck rolls back in to the shot, with the driver frantically chasing it down the street. Miraculously, the delivery van narrowly misses a house before coming to a halt. From the video, it appears that some combination of a tree and its roots redirected the vehicle away from the home.
In a statement to Trending Now, a spokesperson for FedEx said, "While this video shows an unfortunate situation for the driver, safety is our top priority, and we are relieved no one was hurt."
The person who uploaded the video shed more details on the situation.
"There was damage to the vehicle. The driver is safe," a person who goes by "JW" told us. "I did not speak to him directly but did speak to the officer on the scene afterwards and everyone — except for a wooden fence — was OK. I am amazed how fast this video has traveled when it was simply just something funny I shared with some friends."
The clip gained a major boost from Reddit, where it quickly rose to the front page with thousands of upvotes and hundreds more comments. Some users on the site were also amused by the three dogs in the video, which all jump around with excitement as the driver chases after the runaway van.
"Sometimes Security Cameras catch a gem!" is the video's title on YouTube. It has been viewed more than 344,000 times.
