Tow truck operator struck on duty

Jeff Wait Sr. is the owner of Waits Garage, a small family auto repair and towing business located in Wynantskill, NY.  

Early Sunday morning Jeff, 60 and older brother John, 63, were in the process of assisting the NYSP on I-90 when they and the troopers were struck and seriously injured by another vehicle.

These 2 gentleman are the backbone of this business.  They do the towing, repairs, billing, answering of phones and other day to day operations to help support their family.

As a fellow small tow company owner and operator, I have set up this Go Fund Me account to show the Wait family some love and support.

The costs associated with sitting in a hospital recovering from such an unfortunate event are daunting.  

As someone who knows all to well the risks associated with Emergency Roadside Services, I ask you to please help ease some of their pain by making a contribution.  Any contribution will go STRAIGHT to the Wait family.  

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
