OGDEN -- Friday, we gained perspective on how bad Wednesday's fatal in Ogden crash actually was when we spoke to Robert Jones, the man who drove the tow truck that responded to the accident.

Jones he showed us what's left of the car driven by the victims. He called this one of the worst crashes he's ever seen.

"It was wrapped around a light post. The impact was so hard that it actually stalled the winch of my truck. I had to give it quite a few shots to get it to come off the post to load it," Jones said.

He said everyone handled the scene very professionally and his heart goes out to the victims' families.
