ROCK COUNTY, Wisc. (KCRG) - Dashcam video shows a vehicle slamming into the back of a tow truck in Wisconsin, which narrowly misses hitting a worker on the side of the road.

 

It happened along I-39/90 on Feb. 9 in Rock County, Wisconsin, according to the Department of Transportation.

 

In Wisconsin and Iowa, drivers are required to move over or slow down when approaching emergency vehicles that have warning lights flashing, including tow trucks. It's known as the 'Move Over Law.'

 

In the last three years, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said there have been more than 2,300 violations of the law. There were 922 convictions in 2019.

Is anyone keeps track of these tow truck struck incidents. Are there any stats, even near miss incidents as these numbers may be important. I believe the industry has hidden these for far too long and now with social media. Not that they have increased in numbers, it's we are hearing about them more.
