  1. Here's another spin to this fatality where there are other news reports stating that the tow operator was a police officer loading the vehicle. While I know that many tow operators are police reserves or auxilary police officers or sheriff deputies, I don't know of a full-time police officer ever killed while on-duty as a police officer who was actively or hands-on involved in loading a vehicle onto a tow truck or a carrier. None the less, police officer, deputy sheriff or not, they too fall under the same while-line dangers and responsibilities as tow operators do no matter the existence of move-over laws. http://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2019/04/23/tow-truck-driver-hit-killed-i-while-loading-vehicle-onto-truck/
  2. Thanks for advising ... it sounded too good to be true ... especially from opposite coasts , but thanks for the invite none-the-less. R.
  3. Hi Steve ... this looks like a fun event and I'm in California. Does the event pay for travel and expenses?
  4. Tow Operator Fatality TODAY Another tow operator (in Mississippi) has been struck and killed today with limited information. According to the Desoto County Sheriff’s Department, a tow truck driver was loading a car onto his wrecker when another motorist hit and killed him in the northbound lanes of I-55 near the the East Commerce Street exit. The name of the tow operator was not released. Link: https://wreg.com/2019/04/23/one-person-dead-in-i-55-accident-in-desoto-county/

  7. Ron ... I wholeheartedly nominate Steve and Doc Calitri of American Towman Magazine, and, Clarissa Powell, Tow Times Magazine, for their career participation to the towing and recovery industry. Their publications and tow show presentations have provided towing and recovery professionals the platform in which to share everything having to do with the industry. They've created environments that bring tow professionals to together throughout the world. Thank you for your contributions to the industry. You are true leaders and this recognition is due. Steve, Doc and Clarissa have undoubtedly influenced myself and millions of readers on an international scale ... no small task. I believe this award is befitting to their leadership and committment to the towing and recovery industry. R.

  10. Hey Schmitty ... here's to you taking the time to mend your heart. Get well soon from Christine and myself, Alpine, Califorina. R.
  11. There's speculation that the traffic signals at the intersection were not working at the time due to a power outage and the weather conditions. Note: The tow operator had a proper tie-down to the vehicle on his carrier's deck that stayed in-place after impact and its final resting place atop the K-Rail. R.
  12. Headed to Las Vegas teaching 2x seminars for American Towman. Lookin' forward to it. See you there Ron & Chris. R.
  13. We're all awaiting the recovery of the carrier and the sad news that Mr. and Mrs. Sharma have been recovered ... if not for the closure it will bring to their family and the towing community as well. Christine and I pray for the safety of everyone involved in the recovery efforts. R
  14. Hey Jeffrey ... thanks for providing business owners a place to go for the support they need in the loss of a driver on-the-job. R.
  15. Seven? Is that all? Mark Allen Warner of River Falls, Wisconsin holds what is likely to remain an unbroken record for the greatest number od DUIs in the state. He racked up a total of 15 drunk driving convictions before the age of 40, mainly in the 1990s.
