FL Tow Truck Driver Killed In Accident

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of 35-year old Danny Little, who worked for A1Towing. Here's the Clay Today story:

MIDDLEBURG – A man was killed early Tuesday, Jan. 20, when a semi-tractor trailer fell onto him, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office said.

The 5 a.m. accident that killed Danny E. Little, 35, of Orange Park occurred at the A1 Towing Company property in the 3000 block of Joe Johns Road, the Sheriff’s Office said. That’s where Little and another tow truck worker had taken the semi-tractor trailer, which was illegally parked at the Orange Park Kennel Club on Park Avenue, the Sheriff's Office said.

The truck had slipped on the tow truck and the two workers were attempting to move it back on when it slipped again and fell onto Little. He was killed instantly, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Little was a Georgia native who moved to Clay County nine months ago, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Here's the WOKV news story:
