A tow truck driver was ticketed overnight after plowing into an SUV that was being towed by another tow truck, causing the SUV to dislodge and hit a third tow truck on the Bishop Ford Freeway.
About 2:15 a.m., two tow trucks that were towing repossessed vehicles were traveling side by side on a ramp from southbound Interstate 94 to 103rd Street, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Anthony Hoop said.
Roderick Figures, driving a third tow truck, apparently didn't see them and crashed into a Dodge Durango that was being towed, Hoop said. The SUV became dislodged and hit the tow truck next to it.
Figures, 39, of Hazel Crest, suffered back pain and was taken to Roseland Community Hospital in good condition. A 37-year-old woman who was inside the tow truck by the SUV also complained of pain and was taken to Roseland in good condition, Hoop said.
Figures was ticketed with failure to reduced speed to avoid an accident, Hoop said.
