Multiple wreckers service the Dragon on the TN side, where these photos were taken. They are usually in a rotation with the THP dispatch. There are two different wreckers shown in the photos. One is Downtown Autobody and the other is H&H Towing.

That thing in blue looks like it weighs more than my wife's motorcycle (XT-225).

I commuted that road daily from 2000 until 2007. Butlers was out there often, as were Foothills Towing, Tellico Motors, Moody's, etc.. I'm positive that it wasn't exclusive. For several of those years I was the guy at the store that used to call the towing companies. There were companies that wouldn't respond after a while. I'd see it all too often. Someone with good intentions would witness a wreck, come rushing into the store, and get us to call an ambulance and a tow truck. By the time either of those services got there the guy who crashed had gotten up, brushed himself off, and ridden away or his buddies had gone to get them in their truck before the cops could arrive.
