Will AAA tow your car in other situations besides a breakdown?

Will AAA tow my car if it is in an accident, or only if it has a breakdown or a flat tire? The last time I was in an accident, it cost me an arm and a leg to get my car towed. Since then, I have purchased a AAA membership.

AAA specializes in all aspects of emergency road service, including:
  • breakdowns
  • jump-starts
  • towing your car that is undrivable from an accident
You may also want to check on the coverages you have listed on your car insurance policy. If you carry collision coverage on your policy, any tow that is the result of an accident would be covered under this coverage as well.”
