That must have been a god awful noise to witness for the owner. He/she went from vehicle recovery to bumper recovery in the blink of an eye!

I pulled the bumper off a truck once...It didn't make a sound...just felt a little tug and nothing but bumper laying on the ground, dragging behind the recovery truck. Thankfully, it was before cell phones...so no video!
