As road crews continue to treat the roads, wrecker companies are working through the night to handle calls about wrecks and cars stuck.

Our Severe Weather Team Coverage continued throughout Sunday’s winter storm.

FOX23 went to the Storey Wrecker towing center downtown and found out the challenges crews faced.

Storey Wrecker has been busy since early this morning and they tell us the phone has not stopped ringing.

It's been a long day for Storey Wrecker employee Stephen Holloway.

"Makes it a little challenging when there are more accidents on the road," said Holloway.

It’s his day off, but as a driver for Storey Wrecker for seven years, he's working overtime and facing challenges trying to respond to so many calls.

He said it's difficult "when you're trying to get to an accident and there's one that happens in front of you," Holloway said.

So he takes it slow and safe in the snow.

"You get there the best you can," said Holloway.

Back at Storey Wrecker, they are handling hundreds of calls from people needing help.

Holloway told FOX23 helping others is why he loves the job.

"You've just got to be patient because, I mean, put yourself in their shoes.

They're out there. They’re hurt, they're in a wreck. You know that's the last place anybody wants to be," said Holloway.

So he tries to be supportive to the drivers he meets.

"You've just got to have the upmost compassion for them and just understand the situation they are in and all we want to do is help them get out of it," Holloway said.

Storey Wrecker officials say if you get stuck and you're not in an accident, plan a way to get to someplace safely.

They'll be working through the night to make it to all the calls.
