Interesting predicament...curious how such a mishap occurred.  I hope everyone’s ok.


That’s the infamous Marc, owner of Marc’s Towing, on the left in the first picture.  He’s got a large staff but must still come out himself for the tricky interesting ones.

As a former employee of Marc and great family friend, he is on the road everyday making sure everything is running smooth. Not a better operator in town.
