Teen tow truck driver described as ‘a hero’

Tow truck driver Blake A. Gresham from Smithville was helping a woman with a blown tire Monday on Interstate 35 near the Christopher S. Bond Bridge when a box truck struck and killed him. “For me, yesterday, he was a hero and a rescuer, and that’s what he died doing,” the woman whose car broke down said Tuesday.
