Tow-truck processions honor little boy who loved the trucks

Tow-truck drivers from across the state slowly drove through Dorchester this afternoon to honor the memory of Brayden Kelly, a six-year-old who died last week before he got a chance to become a tow driver himself.

Susan Tweed watched the procession for Brayden, who drowned in an East Boston pool.

Today was Brayden's wake. Tomorrow, drivers will assemble at the Stop & Shop on Freeport Street in Dorchester and drive to Knollwood Cemetery, where Brayden will be buried after a 10 a.m. funeral mass at St. Ann's in Dorchester.
