DETROIT (WXYZ) — A check cashing business in Detroit is wrecked Friday morning after two suspects carjacked a tow truck and smashed into it.

Around 2:15 a.m., a 43-year-old tow driver got a request for a tow to the 17200 block of Freeland. Once at the location, two suspects carjacked the tow truck driver at gunpoint then sped off to the 14500 block of W. McNichols, police say.
