tow truck driver owned
Over the past 2 days, its been pouring down raining here in virginia. i was coming home from work this evening when i see a vehicle in the V median in the middle of the 4 lane highway. i pull over and asked if he was ok. a guy from richmond was coming home from work in his mid 90s or so ford diesel van. he hydroplaned and went into the ditch. he slid all the way into the middle in about 1 to 1 1/2' of water. i didnt have a strap so i ran upto the 4x4shop a mile up the road and quickly bought a strap. i get back to him and hook it all up. by the time i get it hooked up, a ford f550 wrecker gets there. he asks if we need any help. he then looks at my truck and says that little f250 dont have the power to pull that van out. i giggled and said if i get traction, she will come out. the tow truck driver then says that 6.0 probably doesn't have the power to break traction. i then laughed and walked to my truck and locked the hubs. i put it in 2nd 4x4 low and got the slack out the rope. keep in mind, i have half my truck out in the highway and half in wet grass. i ease onto the throttle and thought the strap came off, to my suprise, the van was getting pulled right behind me. needless to say, the tow truck driver took off before i even got out my truck. the guy tried to give me 50 bucks but i couldn't take it. sorry for the long post but my day went smoother for the rest of the day.
