A tow truck operater in Detroit Lakes, Minn was seriously injured while trying to assist a fire department in a mass casualty drill.
The bus broke free from the blocks and started rolling down the hill at Northwoods Campground at the Soo Pass Ranch, Gordon said.
The bus rolled into the wrecker and both started going down the incline. Smith tried to jump into the cab of the wrecker to put on the brakes, but he only managed to get halfway in, Gordon said.
Smith was injured when the wrecker sideswiped a tree and slammed the door shut on him
