    Hundreds of tow truck drivers paid homage to one of their own on Wednesday as he was laid to rest after a crash on Interstate 495 in Andover, Massachusetts last week.

    Forty-one-year-old Daniel Coady Jr. died from injuries suffered in the March 14 crash. State police said Coady had been standing next to the left side of his truck in the breakdown lane, loading a vehicle onto his flatbed, when he was struck by an alleged drunk driver.

    According to the Eagle Tribune, an estimated 300 to 500 truck drivers from all over New England planned to take part in Coady's funeral procession on Wednesday morning. The procession will start in the North Andover Mall parking lot.

    Coady's funeral was held at the Conte Funeral Home in North Andover.
