Cold weather keeps South Georgia tow trucks busy

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia towing companies say their business has been steady this week because of the extreme cold temperatures.

A-1 Wrecker Service officials say drivers have been busy towing and servicing cars and trucks since the frigid temperatures hit Monday night.

Drivers say they have seen a wide variety of car problems, most caused by the extreme cold.

A-1 Driver Donnie Baumann said "Radiators, freeze plugs, water pumps, batteries. You name it, the cold's been getting them."

The wrecker service says the best way to avoid problems is to make sure you have antifreeze in your radiator.
