Many Florida residents have had to rely on the aid of emergency responders when their vehicles breakdown while on the road. Yet these very rescuers and service providers place their own lives in danger each time they assist a stranded motorist, for unfortunately, an inattentive driver may not see them stopped on the side of the road and cause a fatal car accident.
Recently, an AAA tow truck driver lost his life in an apparent hit-and-run accident. The AAA service provider was assisting a motorist with a car fire when a second vehicle swerved into the emergency lane and hit the tow truck driver. The tow truck driver died as a result of the accident, which remains under police investigation.
