EAST ISLIP - Drivers forced to abandon their cars during the storm are having more trouble.

Many car owners have to get their vehicles fixed now that they've tracked them down.

Tom Davis was forced to abandon his car during Friday's blizzard. He found it two days later with a cracked and flattened exhaust pipe, which will cost him more than $1,000 to fix. His mechanic believes it was damaged when it was removed from the Long Island Expressway.

Some affected car owners say crews weren't careful when they removed stranded cars from roadways.

News 12 Long Island reached out to the state Department of Transportation to find out how tow companies were hired, but did not hear back.
