  2. TUCSON – Dozens of tow truck drivers came together for a procession on the west side Sunday to honor one of their own. Richard Struble was killed in a hit and run earlier this month. “Oh my god my heart is bursting with love and joy,” Struble’s fiance Mary Brejak said. On the evening of June 10, he was unloading a car in the parking lot of the Discount Tire on Oracle and Prince roads when the driver of a BMW sedan and lost control and slammed into Struble and his customer, Ramon Marillo. Both men were killed. The driver ran from the scene. Tucson Police Department has an arrest warrant out for Justin Lang, 32, the man they believe was behind the wheel of the BMW that Monday night. Almost two weeks later, this tight-knit community showed up in a big way to honor Struble’s service and dedication to his career. “That could have been me or one of my drivers out there,” truck driver Brian Young said. “It’s like a brotherhood, so it’s showing our support for all the other tow truck drivers that lost their lives in the line of duty. People need to slow down, move over pay attention to roadside service. We’re out here for you. We’re here to help you and protect you, we’re putting ourselves on the line.” Anyone with information about Lang’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME. “I obviously feel horrible but I cannot carry any hatred in my heart and I hope no one else will too,” Brejak said.

  3. A tow truck procession is planned while a hit-and-run driver is still on the run AMADO, Ariz. — Police are still looking for 32-year-old Justin Lang. They say he crashed his car killing two men in a discount tire parking lot on the 10th. One of the victims was a tow truck driver who leaves behind a family, friends and a fiancé. Mary Breijak says Rick Struble was the kind of guy that made faces out his tow truck window to make kids laugh, loved to fish, and had a voice as deep as the Jolly Green Giant's. “He was a lot of fun, we're going to miss him,” said Mary. Rick met Mary in Michigan. They had a lot of adventures over the last 12 years. We decided to come back here, and we sold all our possessions together and we bought this rinky-dink RV and it took us 3 1/2 months to get here from Michigan because we would break down every 100 miles.” They got engaged just three months ago. “We were just starting to talk about weddings and stuff.” Mary says Rick died doing a job he loved. “Every six minutes a tow truck driver will die from a car running into them or an accident.” Rick was in a discount tire parking lot dropping off a car for a customer when police say a hit and run driver lost control, plowed into the parking lot and fatally struck the two men. Mary says she is overwhelmed by the support she's gotten from the community. “I am so honored. Rick would be embarrassed he's very modest. He'd be embarrassed, but I am so blown away the kindness of everyone blows me away. Thank you.” RESOURCE LINK "note there is an error in the story.

  5. An Amado tow truck driver who lost his life June 10 will be honored Sunday during a memorial ride organized by other tow truck drivers. More than 30 tow trucks will line up at the Longhorn Grill in Amado at 11 a.m. and make their way north to the Discount Tire on Oracle Road in Tucson where Richard "Rick" Struble, 57, was killed in a hit-and-run crash, organizer Laurie Flynn said. Once there, participants will pay their respects to Struble's fianceé, Mary Breijak. Flynn's boyfriend, Robert Woodbury, worked with Struble, and he and another friend, Jeff Adamson, put together the event, Flynn said. "We knew him and wanted to do something as the tow truck community," she said. "We felt we had to do something for him, like a final road trip, because his life was cut short." Breijak said everyone has gone "above and beyond" to help her during this horrible time. "Oh my, honey. My heart is so full, it's overflowing. You wouldn't believe it," she said Friday. "This community has been outstanding. I love this area." According to Tucson police, Justin Lang, 32, was traveling east on West Simmons Road at a high rate of speed around 10 p.m. June 10. Although Simmons ends at Oracle Road, Lang continued across all six lanes of Oracle and drove directly into the parking lot of the Discount Tire located just south of Prince Road, police said. The vehicle, a 2001 BMW 740 iL, struck a tow truck, Struble and Ramon Murillo III, 32, as they were standing in the parking lot. Murillo died at the scene and Struble died shortly after arriving at a hospital, TPD Sgt. Pete Dugan said. Police said Lang fled east on foot through an apartment complex and has not been found. Lang is also wanted for absconding while on parole. He was released from prison in November in an aggravated assault case. Struble, who worked for Luna's Auto Service and Towing in Amado, was helping Murillo, who got a flat tire near a Border Patrol checkpoint and didn't have a spare, Jesse Luna said. RESOURCE LINK

This photo was taken at the scene of an accident involving a Dodge four-door sedan to show just how well the Budd bodywork and structural members held up in an accident. A conventional metal covered wood-framed auto body probably would have suffered from broken rear door and quarter panel framework and more deformation than this all-steel coachwork sustained.

  17. COVINGTON, La. – A tow truck driver has been sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting three women who had called him to tow their cars. St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Warren Montgomery says 53-year-old Dale Boudreaux Jr. of Covington was sentenced Monday to six years each on three counts of sexual battery. The sentences are to be served simultaneously. Montgomery says Boudreaux denied all of the allegations, but was convicted at trial in May. Each woman testified that Boudreaux touched her sexually without permission between June and October 2014. One woman said he tried unsuccessfully to make her perform oral sex on him. RESOURCE LINK ‘I fear him no more,’ woman says of tow truck driver convicted of sex crimes A St. Tammany Parish tow truck driver was sentenced to six years in prison Monday (June 10) for committing sexual battery on three women he was called out to assist. “For four long years, I lived in fear that he would find me and do it again, or do something much worse,” one of the victims said in a written statement to the court. “After I reported the crime I moved eight hours away. I refused to visit my daughter, much out of fear I would run into him. What he caused in my life is awful.” State Judge William Knight sentenced Dale Boudreaux Jr., 53, of Covington, to six years on each of three counts of sexual battery, with the sentences to be served at the same time, North Shore District Attorney Warren Montgomery’s office said. Boudreaux will be required to register as a sex offender. Boudreaux was convicted after a one-day trial last month. Three women testified that on different occasions between June and October 2014, Boudreaux was called to assist them with towing a vehicle, but he took advantage of the vulnerable situation and touched them sexually without their permission. In one instance, he tried unsuccessfully to force the victim to perform oral sex on him, authorities said. Boudreaux testified in his own defense, denying all of the allegations. The woman who provided the written statement to the court said she had known Boudreaux for 25 years and didn’t hesitate to call him when her vehicle needed to be towed. After the incident, she said she developed panic attacks and anxiety in social situations where many men were present. She described those who were hurt by Boudreaux as survivors. “I said survivors and not victims,” she wrote. “I want him to know I fear him no more because fear equals control and I will not allow him to control the beautiful life I have with my husband, son, daughter, stepson, and all of my family, friends and loved ones.” Assistant district attorneys William Macke and Sharry Scott prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Covington Police Department and St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.

  18. Two tow truck drivers, one of them a retired firefighter, say they were in the "right place at the right time" when they rescued a man trapped on top of his car in floodwaters early Saturday morning. Triad residents Danny Ward and Phillip Alston were driving back to their tow truck shop in the darkness of night when they suddenly encountered the emergency situation. Two men driving separate cars became trapped in floodwaters at the bottom of a hill on Riverdale Drive in Jamestown, according to Ian Good, shift commander with Pinecroft Sedgefield Fire Department. "We saw red lights in the distance," said Alston, one of the tow truck drivers. "We then saw the vehicle submerged underwater. A gentleman was down on all fours, just waving for help." The loud, rushing floodwaters made it difficult to hear the man yelling from the car roof, but the pair said it was clear he was in life-threatening danger. Alston and Ward jumped into action. Alston had previously worked as a firefighter in Brunswick County with swift water rescue certifications and other training. "Just being a firefighter 14 years, the adrenaline kicked in, 'What can I do to help,' we just got into it, jumped on it," said Alston. One reason they chose to make the risky rescue: The man in danger was closer to the two truck drivers than the first responders on the other side of the water, said Ward and Alston. "Something spoke to me, something said, 'Dude, we've got to go do this,' I felt like this was our calling, that's what we were put there to do was that," said Ward. The pair backed their tow truck as close to the water's edge as they safely could. Then, they prepared their winch cable as a method to pull the man to dry land. Ward next began to swim in the water toward the man stuck on his car roof. "I had to swim at least 30 feet," said Ward. "It was definitely deep.... it was extremely cold. It stunk, only thing I was worried about was trying to get that man to safety. Because the only think I could think of was that man has somebody at home." © WFMY News 2 Triad residents Danny Ward and Phillip Alston explain their daring rescue. Once Ward reached the man with the winch cable, they were reeled back out of the water. "It was dangerous, it really was. It was really risky, with no life jacket or anything, it was really risky, but I just wanted to help him, that's it," said Ward. "You risk a lot to save a lot," said Alston. One of the two victims was taken to the hospital by first responders, according to Good with the Pinecroft Sedgefield Fire Department. His condition was not known as of 4 p.m. Sunday. About 20 to 25 first responders were on scene for the rescue with life rafts and emergency gear, including Guilford County Dive Team, Guilford County EMS, Guilford County Sheriff's Office, High Point Fire Department, and High Point Dive Team, according to Good. A 911 call for help came in at 12:15 a.m. Saturday, Good said. While this Good Samaritan rescue turned out fine, Good warns that the public should not place themselves in danger to save other people. "They shouldn't have been going in the water. They didn't have proper training and were not wearing life jackets," said Good. "I understand wanting to be a hero, but we don't want to add them to the chaos." RESOURCE LINK
  19. Tow Yard Owner Speaks Out About Body Found In Worcester Van The owner said the tow operator saw a large amount of flies coming from the vans vent and noticed a "unbearable odor." WORCESTER, MA — Jim Early, of Early's on Park Avenue tow yard, spoke out about the gruesome discovery made in a van that was brought to his tow yard on Wednesday. Police pulled a body from the van and the death has been deemed suspicious. Early took to Facebook to explain what happened that day. He said a blue Chevrolet Express Van was left in front of a property on Park Avenue for about two weeks and was called in by the property owner to Early's as abandoned. Early said the van was taken to the impound lot and when the tow truck operator walked around the van he noticed, "a large quantity of flies exiting a vent located in the right rear of the van followed by an unbearable odor." Management had a look inside the van and saw construction objects, gas cans, and two plastic containers, the post read.

  20. ‘It was horrible;’ Worcester tow truck driver who moved van with body inside recalls disturbing discovery When Jay Senior pulled his tow truck back into the yard at Early’s on Park Avenue to unload an abandoned blue Chevy van he was moving from a few blocks down the road, he got out to see something unusual. “I got out and about 300 flies came out” of the van, Senior recalled, explaining there was a hand-sized vent on the roof of the van. “The amount of flies in the van was unbelievable. The front windshield was covered.” As the flies cleared the van, Senior smelled something rancid. “It was horrible,” he said. “It’s hard to describe, it was so bad.” Senior called Worcester police, who made a disturbing discovery. There was a body inside the van. Sources say the body was male and was stuffed inside a plastic container. When the first officer got to the scene, he could tell there was something wrong, Senior said. “The police officer smashed out the window on the passenger side,” Senior recalled. “And then they made the discovery.” There were two plastic containers inside the van, according to Senior. One was sealed and the other contained tools, he said, adding that there were other items, including gas cans, in the vehicle. Worcester police have described the death as suspicious. An autopsy was slated for Thursday. Marlborough police confirmed Thursday morning that the van was reported stolen in that city on May 7. The owners of the van let a friend borrow the vehicle more than a month ago, according to Boston 25 News. The couple who owns the van told the television station they lent the van to a friend who then “disappeared.” Irene Barry, who told Boston 25 she owns the van with her partner, Jim, haven’t seen the van in six weeks. Barry told the news station someone besides her friend was using the van. “I just hope it’s not him," she said. RESOURCE LINK
  21. TIVERTON — Fire Captain Craig Committo, who is also president of the local firefighter’s union, has been suspended with pay for an alleged physical altercation with an 18-year-old tow truck company worker at the scene of a motorcycle accident over the weekend. Town Administrator Jan Reitsma said Committo was suspended Sunday, a day after the incident, and will be on paid leave “pending an investigation and resolution of the matter.” He had no other comment other than to say it needs to be handled “in accordance with personnel regulations.” According to a police report of the incident, Committo was making comments to the worker at the scene of the accident at Narragansett and Summit avenues Saturday evening about how he should back the tow truck up closer to the damaged motorcycle “and continued to joke (with him) about how he was handling the towing of the motorcycle.” When the worker said to him: “If you think you can do a better job, go ahead fat...,” Committo was visibly irritated, according to the report, walked over to the chain-link fence that was on the ground from the accident “and proceeded to grab (him) by the throat,” police reported, and squeezed for a few seconds. Police and the tow truck driver, who is the father of the worker, stepped in to break it up. As officers were separating both parties, Committo told the worker he would “finish it” when he got off duty, according to the report. The driver and his wife went to the station Saturday to file a complaint, telling police that “Committo’s actions were unacceptable,” according to the report, but they did not want to press charges. Police Chief Patrick Jones decided to charge Committo with disorderly conduct and he was issued a summons to District Court. A call to Committo Tuesday afternoon for comment was not returned.
