An Unusual Accident

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. His car hit a tow truck that was dragging his car.

Mark had broken down and had called the tow truck to tow his car. The guy hooked it up. He pulled away and, immediately, the car fell off the tow truck because it had been hooked up incorrectly. The tow truck driver, with Mark sitting in the passenger seat, slams on the brakes. The Toyota comes from behind and smashes into the tow truck, does a couple of thousand dollars worth of damage which the tow truck's insurance company had to pay for.

Do we have a winner?

TOM: Our winner this week is Peggy Ratts from Pacific, Missouri. Congratulations, Peggy!
