A white tow truck driver was dragged over a mile to his death by a black woman who sped off as he tried to remove her illegally parked car

Father-of-two Allen Rose,35, suffered horrific injuries when his legs became snagged in a metal cable attached to the SUV. Horrified eye witnesses were powerless to help as the Iraq war veteran could be heard screaming as his body scraped along the road ten feet behind the car in Colorado Springs. Motorists flashed their lights and passers-by tried to flag down the driver, 32-year-old Detra Farries, but she ignored them, say police. Officers found a bloody trail and tattered clothing stretching along the road. Rose died in hospital from multiple injuries and blunt force trauma. Police said Farries, did not stop after his body came loose. She was arrested hours later at her home. The mother-of-three is being held on a $50,000 bond at El Paso County jail facing manslaughter charges. Officials said Farries' car had been illegally parked for over a month and did not have any license plates. They say Rose, whose children are 12 and 13-years-old, was hooking the tow cable to the car when Farries jumped in and drove off. Friends of the victim have called for Farries, who is studying to be a social worker, to face a murder charge. Her ex-husband Demetris Mills, is serving a four-year prison sentence for a hit-and-run in which a 51-year-old woman was killed in 2009.

Really? I had no idea what the outcome might be. Seems a little violent and unhuman. Typically wreckers in vancouverAre used to haul large heavy duty trucks. The history behind this post is morbid.
