Car towed during blood pick up
By Victoria Ayotte
Senior Reporter
r Lincoln delivery service
owner saw red Thursday
when University of Ne
braska-Lincoln police lowed one
of the service’s cars which was
transporting blood to the Commu
nity Blood Bank.
The vehicle was owned by
Thomas Morrow Associates, a
delivery service which has an ar
rangement with the Community
Blood Bank to transport blood
from the mobile site on East Cam
pus back to the blood bank during
the day, said Jane DeCalb, a lab
worker for the blood bank.
Morrow’s vehicle was illegally
parked while he was picking up
about 20 pints of blood, DeCalb
said. Morrow said he has had a
couple of tickets for illegally park
ing on campus before, but he
thought they had been “taken care
UNL parking officers spotted
the license plate of the vehicle with
outstanding tickets and called

DeCalb said that the blood bank
called UNL police to get the blood
stored in the van returned to them,
and the police consented to have
another vehicle pick up the blood.
Morrow said he was upset about
the situation.
“It cost me $64 (for the lowing
and tickets) and here we are out
there doing a worthwhile cause
picking up blood,” Morrow said.
Lt. John Burke, in charge of
Cing for UNL Police, said that
row's vehicle was not marked
as carrying blood.
The vehicle had outstanding
tickets, so it was impounded, he
said. Burke would not say how
many tickets the vehicle had.
Burke said he didn't think
Morrow should be exempt from
tickets because he was operating
the delivery service.
‘‘They (Thomas Morrow Asso

ments.” he said.
DcCalb said he thought the situ
