Tow Trucks Drivers Working Nonstop in Mason County

Posted: Updated:

The weather's creating lots of issues for drivers who struggle to stay on the road, and that's keeping tow truck companies extremely busy.

Dangerous road conditions have been a big issue down in the Ludington area in Mason County.

Quinn's Tires and Tows says they've received more than 225 calls from Friday through Monday. Their guys have been working around the clock on wench-outs, people stuck in drifts, and minor fender benders.

With so many calls, Quinn's has been working on a two hour response time and trying to have drivers concentrate on one area.

Quinn's says if you have to wait for a tow, wait in your car and make sure your exhaust it clear so you don't get carbon monoxide poisoning.

9&10's Breelynn Martin and Photojournalist Jacob Johnson rode along with Quinn's.

The county says one company's trucks are just too heavy to travel on the black-top roads and would probably damage them. The trucks are so heavy that even without garbage in them, they exceed the weight limit. If they do travel on the roads protected under state frost laws, they could cause hundred of thousands of dollars in dama...
