    I guess that I was lucky. When the idiot tow driver failed to sucure my car which resulted in it falling off at the first turn, at least no one was hurt. Good thing that my cat was in her carrier and it was safty belted in,so even she was not injured even if she was understandably upset.

    My best wishes to the gentleman involved.
