Tow Truck Convoy Honors Tulsa Worker Killed On Highway
BIXBY, Oklahoma - Oklahoma tow truck operators honored one their own Thursday after 43-year-old Jonathan Taylor was struck and killed last week on the job in Rogers County. Over 80 tow trucks gathered to to honor the husband and father.
Taylor's funeral service was held at the New Beginnings Baptist Church in Bixby. Taylor, who lived in Broken Arrow, worked for Allied Towing of Tulsa.
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.
