“Don’t worry! They will dispatch another vehicle capable of towing, winching, or otherwise extricating both their vehicle and your vehicle from the mud.
The driver of the stuck tow truck will contact the tow company to explain what additional or specialized equipment might be required.
Most road service providers (like AAA) do not cover charges when the tow truck must leave the roadway to extract the vehicle.”
