  CALVIN IS A TOW TRUCK OPERATOR FOR OIL COUNTRY TOWING in ALBERTA . HE WAS ASSISTING  IN A TOW RECOVERY OPERATION ON HWY 2 THE CALGARY TRAIL . HIS TOW TRUCK WAS THE BLOCKER TRUCK ... "THE SAFETY TRUCK".   a Transport truck lost control on the snow and ice covered road while  approaching  the scene of the recovery he slammed into the back of calvins tow truck  then crashed into the second tow truck that was winching A  car from the median.
Calvin heard the truck slam on his breaks and he started running for his life. a second transport right behind the first truck pulled into the median to avoid the accident , that truck hit Calvin from behind throwing him 40 ft into the median .
Calvin injuries are
a broken arm in 2 places,
broken ribs ,
a punctured spleen,
and severe cuts to his legs and body!
