COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — I was going to post the story about the tow truck driver who got dragged to death back when it first happened, but some of the details were sketchy. Now they’re not.

Allen Rose, a 35-year-old married father of two, was hooking up an illegally parked SUV to his tow truck when the owner got inside the vehicle and made a run for it. The cable Rose had attached to the SUV snapped and somehow he got tangled up in it. He was dragged screaming one-and-a-half miles down the street.

Reports are that blood streaked long stretches of Platte Avenue, and boots, a tattered jacket, a ball cap, wallet and other articles were scattered along the road. Rose would die later that day from blunt force trauma. The driver of the SUV was found later and identified as 32-year-old Detra Farries.

It is unclear if she knew she was towing a full-grown, screaming male down the street, but as of now she has been charged with manslaughter. She is free on a $50,000 bond, but the DA is still investigating so more charges may be coming after her hearing on March 9th. The towing company says they are familiar with  Farries, having repossessed her vehicle three times in a six month time frame.

It also seems driving dumb runs in the family. Her husband, Terroll Farries, was sentenced to four years in prison after a hit-and-run in 2008. Bruce Knight says he’s a cousin of Farries and told reporters she did not know she was dragging a screaming man down the street for a mile-and-a-half in front of over 50 witnesses.

“She cries all the time about this, and she just didn’t know the gentleman was being dragged behind her,” Knight said.

The funeral for Rose was today at the First Church of the Nazarene on Fountain Blvd. Over 150 tow trucks arrived from Denver, Buena Vista, and even Albuquerque to honor Rose. Most of the drivers showed up wearing coveralls and reflective vests. Rose leaves behind a wife, his 12-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter.

    Is this a photo of the driver or the tow truck driver in drag? Cuz. Wow. That’s one ugly chick.
    And there is no way in hell she didn’t know she was killing that poor man. I can’t even think about what he went through :( That or she was fucked up on something. Either way, she needs to go to prison for the rest of her life.

    You got it, she didn’t know and from the picture, it appears all she cared about was being late to her hair, and nail appointment. If it looks like a duck, walks, and sounds like a duck, it usually is.

    I sense her compassion for the poor guy will end seconds after the judge bangs his gavel.

    I can’t imagine how anyone could be oblivious to the fact that there is a full grown man being dragged behind their vehicle. I suppose it is possible that she couldn’t hear his screams over her radio, but I would still think you would notice that your vehicle was driving a little funny. I imagine this bitch doesn’t give a shit that this man died. How dare he try to do his job and take the vehicle she wasn’t paying for? He obviously had it coming.

    Someone mixed up pictures, that’s definitely the one that was dragged behind the truck, how else would someone explain that face??? What.the.fuck?

    BULLSHIT. She’s lying. She needs to be charged with murder….Nice try though!!! Good luck finding a jury that’s gonna actually believe that silly shit. She would need OJ’s jury. Wouldn’t your car drive funny?? Does she NEVER look in her mirrors, to the point of avoiding looking at them? Because I would think a man flailing around being drug behind your car would somehow catch your eye when you glance toward the mirror…not to mention the screaming. She’s an angry, entitled, don’t care kinda bitch and I’m sure she only feels bad now because she’s in huge trouble.

    According to neighbors and wintesses all along the more than a mile she dragged him, they were waving and screaming at her to stop. And after the guy finally became untangled, she turned around! There is no way in hell she didn’t know the guy was being dragged behind her. She was probably cracked out. The apartments where the car was towed from is not the best and she had probable been cracked out for 4 days when she saw her car being towed.

    While unlikely, it’s actually conceivable that this woman didn’t realize she was dragging someone until it was too late. There are multiple factors that could have come into play. First and foremost, this woman was on the run in her mind. The accompanying adrenaline can result in tunnel vision of sorts, focusing all functions on getting away and not on the details that might have alerted her to the situation sooner. That in and of itself is significant. On top of that, the type of vehicle she was driving (an SUV might not be noticeably affected by the drag), whether or not she was listening to loud music, and her rate of speed (a mile and a half may have only been a minute or two) are factors that would play into whether or not she actually noticed.

    The thing about criminal justice is that the prosecution can’t just argue, “Well, how could she not have realized?” No, they have to prove *beyond a reasonable doubt* that she DID realize, and that could be difficult in a case like this. I’ll be interested to see whether or not the charge is upgraded.

  • melb1970

    I find it really hard to believe she didn’t know there was something amiss while she drove down the street with a full grown man attached to her car and people lining the street trying to flag her down.
    Must be a real stand up kinda gal – having her car repossessed three times in six months?
    Can you say loser?
    I hope she gets the maximum sentence.

    Lying or not, a man was killed in a very brutal way of her negligence. She can be sentenced to death and still nothing will bring this man back to life, never to be brought back to his family. She needs to pay for what she did.

    I know her in person, and I PRAY she didn’t realize, though it seems like it’s something you’d notice for sure. I’ve always found her to be really nice, if flaky, but I never imagined something like this would happen. I feel so bad for his family, and her kids as well. They didn’t have great role models in the first place, and now I guess they’ll end up in foster care.

    BULLSHIT
    She knew right from the get go she was in the wrong. She sped away while the guy was hooking up her SUV. Who’s gonna try to make a getaway with out looking behind them to make sure they aren’t being chased?
    The only crying shes doing is Because She got Caught. If she had getting away with it She would be hitting the Pipe laughing about how she got over on them.

  • Athena

    That’s the thing about “nice” people. Ted Bundy was “nice” to most people he met, if you think about it. When I was a kid, my dad would tell me, “Any schmuck can be nice. It doesn’t take any skill or depth of character to be nice. Be a good person – that’s what will set you apart.”

    And it’s true. Any moron can be nice, and it’s unfortunate that it dupes decent people. Never judge a person by the smile on their face or the friendly words that may leak from their mouths. Actions are the only way to truly judge a person and, as you said, she was not only flaky, but also a poor role model to her children. Not the qualities of a good person, so don’t be surprised if she knew exactly what she was doing as she dragged this poor man to his death. :(

    From the looks of her picture, she should have missed her hair appointment. I’m sorry, but that shade of hair dye only works for Ronald McDonald.

    I don’t buy into her not hearing him screaming either. Not unless she is deaf or had turned her radio up so loud she wouldn’t hear him. They need to up that charge to murder.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_W2BKLCF4A3MNMUPAZPULSK5ZDU Con Cept

    That’s a good point. It’s probably even easier for sociopaths to be charming, because they’re not going to get nervous about what you think, because deep down they don’t give a damn what you think. I think it might be a relief if I found out she just didn’t give a shit, because then maybe I’d be able to stop thinking about the absolute horror and guilt she’d feel otherwise. I mean, I’d probably have killed myself by now. I can’t imagine living with having done something this bad.

    My brother works as a recovery/towing truck driver, so this one hit close to home. It is amazing what people are capable of doing in pursuit of their possessions. Not too long ago, my brother pulled into a very nice apartment complex on the “ritzy” side of a large city, and someone shot from an apartment window and hit the driver’s side mirror of his truck. Because of the nature of their work, repo men of ANY kind are not allowed to arm themselves in Texas (idk about other states). You cannot convince me that this woman did not know that she was dragging this man–this was not toilet paper on her shoe or her dress tucked into her pantyhose, this was a person that she most likely felt, heard, or seen (even if it was a bloody stripe after the first 1/4 mile). She should get a year in prison for every dollar it would have cost her to simply get her car out of impound.

  • Anonymous

    My guess is that she was trying to get away from the repo man and sped away. I doubt that she knew he had become tangled and that she was dragging him. I am not a lawyer, but I think she should be punished honestly and to the full extent of the law.

    In order to get to the bottom of what she thought I suggest, in keeping with DDs guideline, that her nails be ripped off and then each of her digits cutoff until she will confess to anything. God bless America.

  • hookerpie

    This bitch sure knew enough that her vehicle was being towed. You cant tell me she did not once look in her rearview or sideview mirror while she was trying to get away. Sorry POS yea cry now cause your going to jail hopefully for a long time.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    I think it needs to be upgraded to murder. She was trying to avoid having her vehicle impounded, and there’s no way that she didn’t know that Rose was around there somewhere–after all, tow truck drivers don’t winch a vehicle halfway and leave it. I smell serious bullshit.

    However, I’m willing to bet that she’s awfully sorry that she didn’t let the SUV get towed now.

  • Lizard

    The tow truck is near her car, and she doesn’t even manage to notice it? Considering that “The towing company says they are familiar with Farries, having repossessed her vehicle three times in a six month time frame,” I call bullshit. Seems a helluva lot more likely that she thought she could get away with #4.

    “’She cries all the time about this, and she just didn’t know the gentleman was being dragged behind her,’” Knight said.”

    What the fuck kind of SUV was she driving? Something designed by the military with a turbocharged V-8 engine? Contemporary autos are very good about minimizing road noise, bumps, and what-not. Regardless, your vehicle IS going to handle differently when you’re dragging something behind it, and I’m with hookerpie–she never ONCE looked in her rearview mirror?

    I’m inclined to accede to the notion she might’ve had her stereo cranked and that she might’ve, for whatever reason, been oblivious to what was happening behind her vehicle. But the fact that the tow truck was near enough to her car for the guy to be hooking it up AND that this whole get-your-car-repossessed thing doesn’t seem to be new for her, I say “boo” and call that bawling of hers crocodile tears.

    Wasn’t this broad in “The Fifth Element”?

She knew what she was doing. Her car was dragging like a mofo. This bitch must have felt like she was having that dream when you’re running and no going no-damn-where…. the suv version. Please.

    i’m calling bullshit. she knew he was there, thought he was hanging on, and was trying to peel him off along the way. felt justified, probably. after all, just because she wasn’t paying for the car doesn’t mean it’s not hers!

    i cannot even imagine what it was like for him. i hope that her feeling of self-righteousness and entitlement leads her right to death row…

    I agree with Athena, I don’t think she really noticed she was dragging him. A mile and a half & she stops? If she knew she was doing that she would’ve kept going & not stop for a while.

    HOWEVER, all my compassion went out the window because of her choice of hairstyle. WHO THE FUCK THINKS BLACK WOMEN LOOK GOOD IN CHERRY KOOL AID HAIR??? FUCK THAT!

    Who the fuck thinks women look good in any other color that’s not in between black & natural blond??? Green, blue, pink and purple ARE NOT good colors for hairstyles unless it’s halloween or you’re last name’s McDonalds.

    Either that or maybe she saw him but thought he was hanging on to try to get her to stop and she thought he would eventually just let go…..I know, not logical, but who knows what the crazy bitch was thinking? I just find it hard to believe that she was “on the run” and never once looked in her rearview mirror.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_W2BKLCF4A3MNMUPAZPULSK5ZDU Con Cept

    I think it would also depend on how close behind her car he was. My rear view mirror doesn’t show directly behind my car–you’d have to be at least four or five feet behind, right? And if he was right up by the bumper, she may have thought the drag she felt was just the broken chain from the tow truck. There’s just no way she didn’t know that was on there, at the very least. Either way, the police are investigating this VERY thoroughly, so I’m sure they’ll get the full story. Which is kind of amazing, because there are only, what, a handful of cops left in El Paso county, after they cut so many taxes that they can’t actually afford police any longer?

    First, she knew her vehicle was being towed. That right there is the only reason she should NOT have gotten in her vehicle. Second, you have a bunch of people waving and telling her to stop. You’re little analysis of tunnel vision and adrenaline is all a rouse to try to show this sorry piece of crap didn’t know. That won’t hold up in any court. She’s been charged with the following charges………
    -Leaving the scene of an accident — a class three felony
    -Manslaughter — a class four felony
    -Vehicular homicide — a class four felony
    -Reckless driving
    -Failure to stop at a stop sign, two counts
    -Failure to obey a traffic control device
    -Unsafe or defective vehicle
    -Unregistered vehicle
    -Reckless endangerment, two counts
    Does this help you out a little bit with the charges she’s facing?
