TREMONT - Tazewell County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a crash on Route 9 in Tremont. 
The highway just west of town was closed for more than two hours as officers investigated.
The Sheriff's Office tells WMBD the crash involved a tow-truck carrying two vehicles and
another vehicle heading in the opposite direction. 
  The preliminary investigation found the two vehicles collided head-on. 
The tow truck driver was life flighted to an area hospital, no word on their condition. 
The driver of the other vehicle was not seriously injured.

I think this question has been asked several years ago but I really would like some input on Certified Letters sent out by Tow Co.'s, we encounter problems with lengthy times getting the letters back or the green card confirmation that the letter was delivered and signed for, and the main issue is not getting the green card USPS form 3811 back period?

I know this has been covered a little before but I am not sure of what to do next. We were called by State Patrol to a one vehicle accident off of a main highway. The vehicle rolled into a cornfield and against a fence to a pasture with cattle in it. The vehicle was resting on its side. We pulled the vehicle away from the fence and onto its wheels and pulled it about 150 feet to road. We picked up all the broken glass and car parts and towed it to our storage. Customer only has liability insurance. Submitted a claim with the insurance company for the recovery and cleanup but not the tow. They are denying the claim saying it would fall under roadside assistance or collision. I tried to explain that I believe removal of the vehicle and cleanup of the property is no different than them paying for fixing the fences. This is in Nebraska not sure if that matters. Do I just go after the owner of the vehicle and let him fight with his insurance. Its not a huge bill but would like to see his insurance company pay. Any Advice?

Note to Tow411/TowForce Membership:
 
I have quite a few T-Shirts in different styles and sizes. Since, I have been so consumed with rebuilding the message board from the destruction caused by the previous service provider. I have not had much opportunity to invoice Patrons and Sponsors. Those invoices will be going out in the next month.
 
However, between now and when the invoices do begin to go out I want to make a special offer. This offer is being made to all current and new Patrons/Sponsors. Sign up or Renew a Patron or Sponsor level between now and June 15th, 2018 and receive a T-Shirt. Once you have completed the payment I will send an email asking for your T-Shirt Size and Address if it differs from the payment. All T-shirts will go out within 30 days of payment, yours may arrive sooner. Notification when package is sent will be e-mailed to you.
 
So, what is involved in this promotion. Simple sign up for any Patron or Sponsor Level in the Store. Only rules are Continental US requires a minimum of a Patron Level I, due to the added cost of shipping Canada Requires a Minimum of a Patron II and All Others a Minimum of a Patron III. Sorry, added costs of shipping can get out of hand.
 
If you would like to add an extra T-shirt for $18, just let me know when I ask for your size. I will then invoice you for the additional shirt. any size no additional shipping charges. It is always possible that supplies may become limited, so I ask that you get your order in soon. Thanks

  
All Other Sponsor Levels can be found in the Store.
Suppliers/Vendors require a Sponsor Level Membership.

W. Marvin Rush of Seguin, TX passed peacefully on May 17, 2018, at the age of 79, but his charismatic persona, generous heart, passionate spirit, and leadership will not be forgotten. He was born on October 10, 1938, in Houston, Texas. He was the only son of the late William Maurice Rush and Gladys Knight “Ted” Rush who raised him with grit and grace and taught him that if you want to find success in life, you have to go out and get it.

Corvette Museum Roll Call July 25, 2018

The Mid-America Trucking Show takes place in Louisville, KY every year in March. Beginning in 1972, that have grown to be the largest heavy duty trucking event in the world with 1,100,000 Square feet of space and over 1,000 Exhibitors in the Kentucky Expo Center. For 3 days the show will be the host of Seminars, a truck beauty contest, and a concert.  
 
If you have not been to this show before, it is worth the trip here just to go see the trucks alone. Even if your not shopping around it's a lot to take in and see. Taking up all of the expo center we have here, you'll find everything having to do with trucking. From truck and trailer Manufacturer's to trucking association's, plus anything that you can think of they will have it. Oh, you can't forget about the beer garden they have in Pavilion Food Court going on all 3 days. 
 
This year's Friday Concert that is free to all show attendees will headline Country music star Kellie Pickler. Being sponsored by ExxonMobil. But whats a truck show without trucks? Can't miss the beauty contest they have behind the west wing. These guys get there truck all pretty up just like at a tow show! You can check out the seminars they are having here https://www.truckingshow.com/seminars and there is going to be a fleet maintenance forum off site https://www.truckingshow.com/fleet-maintenance-forum.  
 
What About Louisville? my hometown! There's things here like Churchill Downs, Louisville Slugger, Muhammad Ali Center and our distilleries in the area.
Come for the show, stay for the bourbon!
 
This years show is MARCH 22-24, 2018 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky. You can register at https://www.truckingshow.com/attendee-registration
