KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dozens of people came out Richard L. Berkley Park on Saturday night to honor a man who was hit and killed in the area in 2012. Blake Gresham, 18, was a tow truck driver who was hit by a truck while on the job.
Dozens of tow truck drivers came out for the event and lit up the lights on their trucks. Even though Gresham worked for his family’s tow truck company, GT Tow Service, tow truck drivers from competing companies came out to remember him.
Family members told FOX 4 that Gresham had just started working as a tow truck driver and was loving his new job.
They started a non-profit in his honor called “Move Over for Blake.” The organization raises money to help put up billboards that remind people to slow down and move over for tow truck drivers and emergency responders.
