The two tow truck drivers who were killed making a tow on I-80 demonstrate the peculiar risks of an emergency call on the interstate. All that remains is knowing whether the truck driver was distracted by some digital electronic text laptop Facebook page. To the widows I'd say get in there quickly and hire an attorney to protect your interests because the insurance company for that trucking company won't be on your side. They will be friendly, but don't ever think they are your friend.
