CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. -- Starting midnight Sunday, New York's new "Move Over" law took effect, requiring drivers to slow down or move over for "hazard" vehicles including tow trucks.
The law already covers emergency vehicles, including police cruisers and fire trucks.
Last month, Kevin Woloszyn of Delevan in Cattaraugus County was driving Interstate 90 back to college outside Syracuse when his truck broke down. The tow truck driver who responded, Todd Young, was killed when a tractor trailer hit him.
"Just life, you can't take it for granted," Kevin said. "You know, you might be here one second, and the next second you're just out doing your job and that's it."
Kevin shared his story with 2 On Your Side in hopes it will cause drivers to be more careful around flashing lights. Kevin hopes the new law with also help.
