Tow Truck Driver
A crash in South St. Paul Tuesday morning shows just how dangerous it can be for emergency workers responding to accidents. A car hit a squad car, pinning the state trooper inside and throwing a tow truck driver onto a busy road.
A tow truck driver was struck and killed Monday morning in Jackson County, Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says the accident happened at about 8:25 a.m. on Interstate 94, five miles east of Osseo. The victim was in the process of removing a disabled vehicle when he was hit by a passing truck.
A 39-year-old St. Paul woman is accused of hitting a tow truck driver with her car and taking him for an unwanted ride after he was trying to repossess it, according to charges filed Friday in Ramsey County Court.
