When you’ve been in an accident, your safety is of primary importance. If you have any doubt at all that your vehicle may not be roadworthy, you will need to call a tow truck.
If you’ve just been in a car accident, inspect your vehicle carefully before getting back behind the wheel. Not all vehicle damage is visible, and you don’t want to risk exacerbating damage from the accident by driving the vehicle. To be sure, never attempt to drive if your wheels are obstructed, damaged, or bent in any way.
Another reason to call a towing company is when you feel shaken by the accident and worry about your ability to concentrate on driving. Accidents can be traumatizing, and your safety, as well as the safety of others, depends upon your decision to call a tow truck.
