Tow Truck Operator & Tow Trucks Struck (TX) "UPDATED"


Recommended Posts


Major accident with entrapment (Haltom City)
Fort Worth is working a major accident on the 4300 block of west bound NE loop 820 just past Haltom Rd.
PD on scene reports a wrecker driver was working to load an abandoned RV up and was under the vehicle when it was hit by another car.
The tow truck driver is trapped under the vehicle and FW is working to get him out safely.




There are few details at this point other than the Tow Truck Operator did survive. He suffered both legs being broken and numerous bruises. More details will be added when they become available. If anyone can provide more information please fill us in and we will wait to see if the is a news report prior to releasing the company name.


Towing Company has been named: Silverstar Heavy Towing & Truck Repair


UPDATE: DFW Scanner FB page.

The Move Over Slow Down Law applies to tow trucks, too! The law states motorists must move over a lane, or slow to 20MPH under the posted speed limit, when passing an emergency scene on the highway. This tow truck driver was injured and sent to the hospital after this driver struck his tow truck.


Barry Metzing of Silverstar Heavy Towing reported on the DFW Scanner page.

Silverstar Wrecker Svc just ask for prayers at this time. He is doing fine just has alot of injuries. It's very hard for me because it was my manager and my right had man to the company. From what we know his pelvic bone is busted also shattered kneecap possibly broken foot. 16 Staples in his head.
