I sure wouldn't be paying to take it to the dump. Part it out and recover some of your money + the car. My family been in the towing business for almost 70 years and if you have a deal with the police you sometimes get stuck and that was a LARGE tow bill but if all that equipment he had was his he is doing ok. You win some you lose some. I can't imagine even driving my DP without insurance + Good Sam, Coach Net, or something.

There is something disturbing watching someone do a close up film/narrate of an accident while someone is still trapped in the vehicle.

Not that it makes much difference of the results but a couple of questions arise about the where of the crash.

"It took the Ilwaco Fire Department over an hour"... From Ilwaco it is at least a 30 minute drive to anyplace in Oregon and that includes a 5 mile drive across the Astoria–Megler Bridge.

It didn't take the FD an hour to get there; it took them an hour to dig the passenger out of the debris. Re-read the comment....Dennis


The point I was making was that the Ilwaco FD would have been highly unlikely to be called into Oregon. I worded it very poorly.

If you read your contract with your roadside towing company,Good Sam or CoachNet, you will find that they will not tow a wrecked vehicle

Some of the comments in the comments section seem to come from the towing company that is located in Ocean Park, WA. Oregon State Police isn't likely to have them on the call list unless it was an extreme emergency.

And the poster that said "Most roads in Oregon have no guard rails;" must be a transplant. I am an Oregon native for 67 years and driven a vast majority of the roads in the state and have seen many miles of guardrails.

I don't doubt you've seen many miles of guardrails, but the standard is no guard rails on the majority of roads throughout the State.

Very sad that they had stopped for the night at a Walmart and were made to leave because no parking allowed. That is why the driver was out there at night and sleepy. Had probably already been driving all day. Had no money for a tow, probably had no money for a campground "if" they could even find one.

2346 read what I said insurance + Good Sam, Coach Net, etc. and I have already been towed from an accident. Someone paid, not me.

That one will not buff out.
