Tow truck photos

While at the scene of a technical rescue where a worker became trapped after the trench he was in partially collapsed around him, I photographed these heavy wreckers from Lin Mar Towing that were part of the emergency response. The tow truck photos depict two different types of unit, a Century rotator on a Kenworth chassis, and a conventional Century heavy wrecker on a Peterbilt chassis.
