A convoy of tow trucks from Oklahoma City traveled up the Turner Turnpike heading to Taylor's funeral. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says it provided an escort for those trucks that met up with even more operators in Tulsa.

The united group - 82 tow trucks strong - convoyed to the church for Jonathan Taylor's funeral.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Taylor was helping with a disabled semi when another semi hit and killed him on Friday, January 26th, along the Will Rogers Turnpike.

There is a GoFundMe account set for Taylor's family. He is survived by a wife and three children.
