Good Stop by Local FD

Class A on Mass Pike in Charlton, MA. Jeep destroyed, motorcycle took a hit, but the local FD saved the coach from major damage.
No cause given by either FD or Mass State Police.

I'm curious if he had the Jeep transmission and transfer case set properly for towing or, as stated above, if it was even ok to flat tow this Jeep.
