Hundreds attend funeral for tow truck driver killed while helping stranded motorist in storm


Recommended Posts


VALLEJO (KRON) - James Morris, the tow truck driver who was killed as he was helping a stranded motorist in Sausalito during last week's storm, was laid to rest Thursday. 


Hundreds attended the service in Vallejo to remember the man well known in the industry and who also co-owned Wilers Towing in Vallejo. 


Friends say he had been safely towing cars for 20 years. 


According to the Marin County Sheriff, Morris was helping a motorist on the right-hand shoulder of southbound Hwy 101 north of Spencer Avenue near the Robin William's Tunnel on Feb. 27 when an unknown approaching car lost control on the wet roadway, spun out, and collided with the parked tow truck. 


The car also collided into Morris, who was out of the truck helping the motorist. 


Morris leaves behind his high school sweetheart wife of 18 years, two daughters, a sister, mother, and father.
