On Friday, May 15th at the Cedar Lake Speedway in St. Croix County during a school bus race, Edward A. Nicholson, a member of the safety crew, died while trying to clear the track as another bus fell onto him.


The St. Croix County Emergency Communication Center responded to the call and at the scene, Nicholson was extricated and life saving efforts were attempted by emergency personal.


Nicholson was pronounced dead at the scene by the St. Croix County Medical examiner.


The incident remains under investigation by the St. Croix County Sheriff's office, Medical Examiners office and OSHA.

Its with a heavy heart that we get the news of the passing of Edward Nicholson, he was only 62. He spend decades working with our towing family and in the community. He always had a wave for fellow operators on the roads, a smiling helping spirit, a helping hand and great knowledge on the jobs, no matter who he was working along side of....your uniform color and tag didn't matter. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends, and to his family at Twin Cities Transport and Recovery. RIP Eddie, we will carry your chains from here.
