Richmond towing companies: It's crazy out there

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The snow and slush made for dangerous driving conditions Friday night.

State troopers and towing companies have been busy responding to hundreds of calls.

Flares, bumper to bumper traffic and tow trucks loaded with mangled cars were an all common sight on Friday night.

"Anybody would have to be kind of crazy to be out on the road this time of day," said driver Brian Isham.

Isham says he's just happy to be alive after slippery road conditions led to a chain reaction crash on I-95 that knocked his truck across the interstate.

"As a matter of fact I just bought the truck," said Isham. "I haven't even made the first payment on it yet."

State police were still responding to at least 108 calls late into the night.

"I would rather see you safe at home than out on the road somewhere in a ditch," said Derrick George who is manager of On-Time Towing.

George says his drivers had been working non-stop since noon Friday.

"It's crazy out there," said George. "People are driving like they don't know what they are doing. Secondary roads will freeze up then the primary roads will start freezing up. It will be pretty bad tonight."
