Complaint Review: Ricky's Towing
Ricky's Towing Tow Driver attempted to drive me off road, and then later attempted to reverse into my car to hit me. Leominster Massachusetts
Yesterday (8/13/17) around 6:00PM when I was driving on the state highway in Lancaster, MA, I was IN FRONT of a Ricky's driver when we came into a lane merge (2 lanes into 1). The Ricky's driver, an older white male with a white mustache, immediately accelerated to pass me entirely (although he was behind me) in the merge (after my lane had already ended) in order to prevent me from merging into traffic in front of him. He attempted to run me off the road entirely (I nearly lost control of my vehicle on the highway trying not to go off the side of the highway, and almost caused a VERY serious, and potentially deadly accident on a state highway. He then took the same right exit off the highway from me. While driving down the road I got his plate number, and when he took a left turn off the road, I slowed to get the company name off the side of his truck. This is when he immediately reversed backward toward me, INTO traffic without stopping to turn around back where he came from, coming less than an inch from hitting me (he was looking at me when he did this - I know he saw me), and then blocked me from driving forward. I had to reverse my own car to stop him from hitting my car. He then proceeded to yell at me out his window (which I could not hear because mine was up), while I pointed to the Ricky's name and number on his truck, indicating that I was calling the company to report him. He rolled his eyes at me and gave me a thumbs up. My boyfriend then called Ricky's while I was driving away, and the man who answered the phone at 6:00 PM attempted to LIE and said they "sell tow trucks and don't have drivers". My boyfriend then yelled at the man and stated that his driver attempted to run us off the road and then hit us, and blocked us from driving forward in traffic. He told them on the phone that the Ricky's Towing sign with the number we called was right on the side of the white tow truck, and that we were going to be contacting the state police (which I did). The Ricky's person then stated "good luck with that" and HUNG UP on us. Due to the fact that we were lied to, disregarded, and then hung up on after being nearly killed by one of their drivers when trying to report this incident, I have also filed a complaint with the attorney generals office and called the police as well.
