Raleigh County WV -

Raleigh County tow truck driver,Carl Musick, works 7 days a week with only a few nights off. He told me that this weather is a disaster but it does make for an interesting work day.

I was with Musick for about an hour and a half and in that time frame we pulled out 4 cars that were stuck in the snow.

He told me that it wasn't uncommon to pull out over 20 cars in one day when the weather is as bad as it was.

Musick planned to work passed 5PM today because of such high call volumes. Overall he worked a 14 hour shift and towed about 18 cars.
