    This was such a horrible scene yesterday. Sadly, it was only a matter of time for something like this to happen. The Roberts Towing trucks are flying up and down the streets like maniacs, cutting corners, speeding through heavily populated narrow streets where families with children (including mine) live. I hope the woman recovers from her injuries quicly.

    This is terribly tragic, but as soon as I heard that it was a Roberts Towing truck….I said the SAME exact thing. Those guys drive sooooo reckless….
    I hate to say I am not surprised this happened…
    I know I too have had a number of close calls with them.
