The employer of two tow-truck drivers killed on the job last weekend near Columbus is planning a procession through Billings to honor them.

Hanser's Automotive announced on its Facebook page that tow truck drivers, law enforcement, firefighters, and paramedics in Montana and Wyoming will gather at 7 p.m. Friday atop the Rims in Billings to honor Nick Visser, 37 of Billings, and Casie Allen, of Reed Point.

Emergency vehicles will start staging on Highway 3 atop the Rims at 6 p.m., then light up the area at 7 p.m. and observe a moment of silence.

At 7:15 p.m., a procession will move down 27th Street to Interstate 90, exit back into town at King Avenue West (exit 446), loop down Old Laurel Road to go south on South Billings Boulevard to pass the Hanser's office at 430 S. Billings Blvd.

The procession will continue west to the Zoo Drive exit (443) and end at 360 Office Solutions.

Visser and Allen were killed Saturday when they were struck by an oncoming vehicle while responding to an accident on the snowy interstate.
