TRAA Meets, Presents Awards at the Florida Tow Show

COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — A tow truck driver who came to the aid of a couple whose car broke down on the Dan Ryan Expy. could only watch as they got into the cab of his truck and drove off, leaving him stranded, prosecutors said.

The Towing and Recovery Association of America (TRAA) drew 22 state associations, up from 19 the year before, to a meeting What's worse — they drove over his foot as they got away, acat the Florida Tow Show in Orlando that addressed the need for cording to the towing company. state and local groups to become more active. Joanne Blyton, first vice president and a state legislator from Montana, urged members to become better watchdogs in the face of legislation around the country that could adversely affect towing companies. She pointed out the efforts of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA – see “Face to Face” story in May issue of Tow Times), which has stepped up lobbying at the state level to restrict towing companies.

"It's just unbelievable," XL Towing owner Sherry DiVito said Thursday. "They ran over my driver's foot; they left him on the highway. He could've been killed." The driver invited three people stranded on the side of the road to get into the cab of the tow truck so they wouldn't be exposed to dangerous traffic on the busy Dan Ryan, DiVito said.

But while the driver was putting their car on the hook, the tow truck drove off — with the busted Nissan Murano dragging be“It’s our industry and if we don’t protect it, it won’t be there for hind it, prosecutors said. us,” Blyton said. Raekwon Shack, 19, is accused of speeding away in the stolen Special presenter Hardy Smith offered tips on how state associa- truck. tions can become stronger: • Adapt to change. • Grow membership. • Develop board members.

The driver had been called to the Dan Ryan near 87th Street on Wednesday to help Shack's girlfriend, 20-year-old Keia Street, whose 2000 Nissan Murano needed a tow, court records show. Though the driver was expecting two people, he was greeted by Street, Shack and another man, DiVito said.

• Build local relationships.

Since "cars come whipping around on the Dan Ryan like they're in the Indy 500," DiVito said, the driver suggested the three cliTRAA presented its annual awards to Belinda Harris, Presidential ents sit inside his tow truck while he worked.

Based on GPS data, the tow truck headed north to 71st Street, where it exited the expressway and stopped, DiVito said. The tow truck driver, meanwhile, used his cellphone to call for help. Once DiVito knew the driver was OK, she said, the longtime owner called police and provided them with GPS tracking info for the stolen truck.

Belinda Harris of Ray Harris Inc., Greensboro, N.C., received the Presidential Award from TRAA President Jeff Roskopf.

Just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, police found Street, Shack and their accomplice trying to unhook the Murano from the tow truck in the 7000 block of South Wabash Avenue, according to an arrest report.
