On November 10th, 2020, during the winter months, Pro-Tow is always ready and prepared for the inevitable roadway slide-offs. In this incident, Team Pro-Tow received an emergency dispatch for a tractor-trailer that had done just that. They needed heavy-duty towing. The roadway pass conditions were extreme enough that both directions were closed down. We responded quickly to the call.
Team Pro-Tow Quickly Responds
Without delay, we were able to mobilize a team of professional semi-truck accident recovery personnel, and the heavy-duty tow equipment required to handle this unusual and challenging incident. Both Pro-Tow and Pro-Enviro were on the scene, bring our specialized equipment, and certified and trained operators in no time. We were ready to get to work on this recovery.
Hookup, Tow, and Cleanup
After surveying the scene of the fire and truck accident, Team Pro-Tow was able to safely hook up the semi-tractor and trailer to our towing equipment and remove it from the roadway. Once the tractor and trailer were out of the way, we employed our truck accident recovery and cleanup crew. To do this, we used a Bobcat compact track loader, industrial-grade grapple, and a specialized street sweeper.
All the debris, ashes, truck parts, and contaminates were cleaned up and secured in a dump trailer for safe disposal. Our tireless teams worked through the night to restore I-90 to a safe condition, so all regular travel on the roadway could continue.
Once the cleanup and truck accident recovery was complete, all Pro-Tow and Pro-Enviro teammates returned the tractor and trailer to our secured storage yard in Auburn, WA. Here, we continued unloading the debris, prepared the manifest, and completed an extensive cleanup of all equipment.
