FROM cars that crash into hotels to overturned vehicles in multi-storey carparks - they have seen it all.

Following several reports on freak accidents which shattered motor metal and shocked onlookers, towing companies spoke to The New Paper about complicated recovery missions that they handled.

They also spoke of the risks that tow teams can face, for example, when handling an overturned car.

Mr Jim Koh, 26, who owns a towing service, explained: "You (run the) risk of an explosion because the fuel tank may be damaged and leak during the process, and there could be a spark. So we have to be very careful when we recover overturned vehicles."
