ST. CLOUD -- More than 50 tow trucks from all over the state lined up in St. Cloud Saturday to honor a tow truck driver who was killed while on the job last Tuesday.

Chris Clavin

The funeral procession started around 1:15 p.m. at Christopher Clavin's home along 13th Avenue South and continued down University Drive.

James Trantina was Clavin's co-worker. He says even though it's a holiday weekend it wasn't hard to rally the truck drivers.

Clavin worked at Collins Brothers Towing and was killed when a disabled semi size tow truck rolled over him. The owners of Collins Brothers Towning along with the Minnesota Professional Towing Association organized the procession.

The trucks escorted Clavin's family from their home to Williams Dingmann Funeral Home.

Clavin worked for Collins Brothers Towing for less than a year.
