Jack's removes wrong wreck from St. Robert crash scene Friday night
Jack's removes wrong wreck from St. Robert crash scene Friday night

Jack's Towing personnel removed this vehicle rather than the correct car Friday night.
ST. ROBERT, Mo. (March 6, 2009) — Jack’s Towing is well-known in the Pulaski County emergency service community for speedy service, often arriving quickly at crash scenes and rapidly towing vehicles away to help emergency personnel get traffic moving following wrecks.

While Jack’s Towing personnel quickly removed a Honda Accord from the scene of a two-vehicle crash Friday night at the traffic light on the corner of Highway Y and St. Robert Boulevard next to the Mobil gas station, St. Robert policeman Dan Wogan discovered after the Honda was taken away that the tow company personnel had removed the wrong vehicle from the crash scene and stranded a soldier with no car. Tow company personnel returned the Honda to the crash scene and then removed the correct vehicle, a white Mercury Grand Marquis LS whose driver had already been transported to an area hospital.

Complete crash information wasn’t immediately available since the department’s traffic sergeant won’t be on duty until Saturday morning. However, Lt. Felton Shoemaker of the St. Robert Fire Department said his personnel responded to a 7:35 p.m. crash that was initially reported as a non-injury wreck but eventually resulted in the transport of one patient.

Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel reported that the patient was transported to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon. Names and injury information weren’t immediately available but the driver’s condition was not believed to be serious.

Jack’s Towing returned the Honda Accord, which sustained significant front-end damage to the driver’s side, about 8:06 p.m., and about 8:13 p.m. removed the Mercury Marquis, which had less visible damage to the driver’s side front and rear doors. Emergency personnel left the scene shortly afterward.
