The family of a tow truck driver hit and killed on Highway 50 in West Sacramento want the person responsible for his death to come forward.
Michael Bower, 29, was forced to pull over when his tow truck stopped working around 8 p.m. on Monday. Police believe a passing big rig hit him near the Jefferson Boulevard exit.
"I just didn't think it was real," Bower's wife Jamie Bower said. "He was a hard-working father. He loved his kids and wife."
Bower leaves behind two daughters.
"It's hard to lose someone you've known for so long," Bower's friend and coworker Stephen Kipker said. "A piece of me is gone."
Kipker was friends with Bower for 10 years and worked with him at Octavio's Towing Company out of Dixon.
California Highway Patrol said Bower was putting away highway safety triangles when he was struck by a driver that kept on going.
