Tucson tow truck driver run over by vehicle he was hauling

Tucson tow truck driver run over by vehicle he was hauling

A tow truck operator was run over by the mini-van he was towing this morning.
The man, in his 20s, and his colleague had just repossessed the van and were towing it along Interstate 10 at about 8:45 a.m. when a problem developed, said Capt. Adam Goldberg of the Northwest Fire Department.
The men pulled the tow truck to the shoulder of the interstate near Mile Post 244 just west of the new Twin Peaks interchange off-ramp to adjust the van in tow. One of the men was working under the rear of the van when the tow truck rolled backward over him.
He sustained fractures to his lower extremities and was taken to University Medical Center in serious but stable condition, Goldberg said.
The tow truck was not in park when the accident occurred, but "whether it was human error or mechanical error we don't know yet," Goldberg said.
The Department of Public Safety is investigating the incident.

  1. I think this kind of person didn't like their job. Why they need to do it? I was working in a heavy hauling company and I think that will be an easy job for me.
