It's a day Banning tow truck driver William Buell will never forget.Read the full story here.
The driver for Stagecoach Towing said he arrived Sunday at a routine freeway flat tire call when his worst nightmare came to life.
As he stood along the freeway assisting a motorist, Buell said he looked up and saw a car pulling a boat coming right at him.
He dove for his life into the cab of his tow truck as the car sideswiped his truck, with a loud crash.
When the dust settled, Buell was one of six people injured in the accident just before noon Sunday, closing the Beaumont Avenue off ramp of Interstate 10 for hours. The crash involved three vehicles and boat.
