At this time, I have been unable to add details of this tragic accident to the Tower Down Topic.


It seems from some research Scott Pimental was 49 years of age and possibly lived in Howell, NJ and other cities/towns in Tennessee. However none of this is confirmed and requests for information have not been returned.

Sorry, there continue to be no updates, No Obit notifications to confirm the death other than FB messages. If anyone can assist in learning more about this death please chime in, Thanks.

This topic has been updated, there continues to be a lack of details. However we do know that he was dropping off a vehicle when his truck rolled over him. There are no reports found at this time, this is not uncommon as we have had this issue a few times in the past when researching industry deaths. A tragic death of a tow operator, but many jumped to the conclusion early on this was another tower struck on the side of the road.


Though, it may be later than we would have preferred. I believe there is now enough information to release a tower down email.

I received a call this weekend by someone that knew him and looking if there was anything that could be done for the family and he was setting up a go fund me account. He was unsure of the details but said there was a problem with the park on the truck and they was unable to get the truck to go in park at the scene. I have not seen any info on local news or online on this. I asked him to send me details by email. I believe if this is the case that the towing company wont be giving out much details.

I was able to get the obituary and funeral information from the following link:



I also found out through Starlite's FB page that there will be a wrecker line-up:



Still, there is no official news report that has been located yet.

For any Wrecker companies who are going to attend for the line up and ride thru town, if possible let me know so we can give the funeral home an idea of how many trucks will be particapating. This is not a must just so we'll have a rough estimate. We thank each and everyone of you for your continued prayers, kind words and support thru this. May God bless each and every one of you and keep y'all safe.


Here's the address and arrangements for Scott's funeral services.

Halls Funeral Home
2106 Cookeville Hwy
Livingston, TN 38570

Thursday August 29th
12-2 pm visitation with funeral service starting at 2 pm
