around 250 tow trucks came from all over the Michigan and from as far away as Indiana and Canada to the Wednesday service.
Law enforcement and fire personnel were also on hand to pay their respects and escort the hearse.
"Gratifying and humbling," St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon said of the turnout at the service and procession to Burtchville Township Cemetery. "It says volumes about Jason Schultz."
Schultz was pulling a vehicle out of a west side ditch when an 18-year-old man was driving the southbound vehicle that hit him, according to the St. Clair County Sheriff Department. He drove onto the shoulder of the road, around the tow truck that was facing northbound in the southbound lane, and hit Schultz, the tow cable and the vehicle in the ditch.
