Details of Towing Truck Incident on Byron and 5nd Street

A towing truck was needed when a call came into Grand Rapids Towing to attend to a Chrysler Town and Country that had been involved in an incident last Friday, August 2, 2019.  The Town and Country had been driving normally through an intersection at Byron Center Avenue and 52nd Street SW.  The towing truck team arrived to discover that the Town and Country had been the victim of a hit and turn. Another vehicle was reported to have run a red light, slamming into the Town and Country, forcing it around in a circle and up against a telephone pole. The towing truck team arrived to see the Town and Country up against the pole. The towing truck team was thankful that no one was hurt from the incident. The towing truck team assessed the condition of the Town and Country. The towing truck team backed up the flatbed towing truck to get closer to the Town and Country.  The towing truck team released the winch hook and fastened it onto a secure part of the Town and Country.   Carefully, the towing truck team moved the Town and Country closer to the ramp coming off the flatbed. First, the front tires of the Town and Country moved up the flatbed towing truck.  Next, the back tires moved onto the flatbed towing truck.  Next, the towing truck team moved the Town and Country all the way onto the flatbed and then evened it to be parallel with the ground. The towing truck team then secured the front tires with chains and straps.  Next, the towing truck team secured the back tires with chains and straps.  After police officers gave them the go-ahead, the towing truck team brought the damaged town and country to a secure facility until it would be needed by police to further the investigation.
