------My husband Jesse Inman was a heavy duty tow truck driver for Hanifen Towing in Des Moines Iowa. On September 13 he was assisting a broke down semi on the side of the interstate. Him and his co-worker and also the man they were towing were struck by a Semi that failed to move over and clipped one of the Semi's causing a chain reaction. My husband was smashed in between his wrecker and the semi he was hooking up to, He died before help arrived. Here is a link to the tribute that was put on by the towing community from all around the state of Iowa.
