SETX parents seek to change tow law after daughter killed when towed vehicle disconnects

SETX parents are seeking to change towing law after daughter killed when towed vehicle disconnects from tow truck.

The parents of a young woman killed in a towing accident are trying to change towing laws after their daughter was killed four years ago.

Twenty-four year-old Grace Lee, of Beaumont, was a passenger while traveling on I-10 E in Breaux Bridge, La., when a towed vehicle broke loose and crashed into the vehicle that Lee was riding in.

Lee died in the crash.

Her parents Bryan and Mary Lee expressed disbelief, sadness and disappointment after the acquittal of the driver and the owner of the illegally salvaged tow business.

They're talking to state representatives and asking for a law to ban dangerous car towing operations.

KFDM/6 News on Fox's Ashley DeVriend reports how Grace Lee is remembered and how her parents are seeking to prevent other families from experiencing the same grief.
