Wrecker Service at Coffee Bluff
Our wrecker service was needed when a Cadillac ended up in the water near Coffee Bluff Marina. It was reported that the driver had enjoyed a few drinks at the nearby watering hole. Apparently, he exited the bar and drove his car off the end of the pier. The driver ran away….deciding…not to stick around.
The story gets better. When the authorities arrived, they found a trail of blood that led them to a nearby bathroom. The driver hiding in the bathroom. He was taken away.
And the story gets better…still. During the recovery by Tim’s Towing, a large quantity of marijuana floated out of the Cadillac. We can’t invent these stories.
