Angry residents flood towtruck company in Lancaster

Dozens of residents showed up at Silverback Towing located at 1103 Ranck Mill Road in Lancaster this morning to retrieve their cars after they had been towed during Tuesday’s snowstorm. Many of the motorists were rankled, especially at the prospect of laying out $180 to get their cars back. One driver we talked to told us he walked two hours to get to the facility.

Dave Rohrer’s car got towed. He said his car was parked on South Queen because he was helping elderly and disabled folks dig out.

Robert Hall of Lancaster was towed. He works 3rd shift, so he says he was asleep when the Snow Emergency was declared. He and others expressed that more effort should be made to notify people who are being towed.


The city provides free parking at several city garages during snow emergencies.
