Adventures of A.T.

It took two tow companies working closely together (B&B Wrecker Service and Big Sky Towing) to move a massive crane back onto the roadway after a rollover. The operator hauling the wire rope over his shoulder is B&B’s Weldon Brookshire, who’s 90-years-old and still bustin’ hump in 110-degree heat! Photo courtesy of Harvey Carrera of B&B.
