Accident Recovery: What Goes Down, Must Come Up

Accident Recovery: What Goes Down, Must Come Up

After an incident on May 25, 2022, Team Pro-Tow was on hand to aid in an accident involving a minivan and a dump truck. It was an unfortunate situation that left both vehicles with significant damage. Pro-Tow responded to this accident recovery to rescue these vehicles.

Maybe you’ve heard the saying before, what comes up must go down. But, in this case, the scenario was the opposite. The dump truck in this accident flew over a metal guardrail and landed about 150 feet down into a steep embankment. So, we needed to bring it back up the roadway 150 feet.

We used our trusted and skilled Team Pro-Tow operators to build a recovery plan for this dump truck recovery. Our operators rigged up the dump truck in the ditch with careful effort. We did this to pull the dump truck on the road, removing it from the scene of the accident.

Submarined Car Needs Crane Lift

Submarined Car Needs Crane Lift

In this incident, on December 3rd, 2021, Team Pro-Tow was called in to help with a car that had gone into a retention pond in Maple Valley, WA. The dispatch came from the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO), and the vehicle was completely submerged! We responded with an HD Crane Style Rotating Wrecker per KCSO’s request. This submarined car needed an emergency towing service!

Once we arrived, our team did a scene assessment to decide the best approach for the crane lift recovery. We agreed that moving the vehicle closer first would make the rescue safer. So, we coordinated with KCSO divers and got to work.

Underwater Emergency Towing Service

First, the KCSO divers went into the water to rig the vehicle. Then, we brought the car closer to the shore to continue the rescue and crane lift process. Once it was at the shoreline, we used the LD vehicle rigging kit to lift the vehicle out of the water. We continued lifting it, using the chance to drain as much water as possible. After the car drained, we dispatched a flatbed to transport the vehicle.

Crane Lift Finale

Meanwhile, as per KCSO’s request, we set the vehicle on the shore. Pro-Tow then removed all rigging, inspected it, and returned to its original location.

We waited until the flatbed arrived and then helped with loading the car onto it. We secured it with a four-point tie down to safely transport it back to the Auburn yard. Once it was there, we unloaded the vehicle in our Portable Parking Stall Containment Pond. Doing so ensures no hazardous fluid leaks out of the vehicle and into the ground.

Our team then reconditioned the equipment by cleaning and inspecting the straps used in the tie-down. Once we finished the paperwork, we gave the all-clear on this emergency towing service.

In addition, we offer in-house services to keep your fleet running at top quality through our Motorplex division. We can help with various services to keep your fleet running at its best. Learn more about our divisions at www.pro-tow.com.

Team Pro-Tow responded to a dispatch to recover the vehicle from the residential yard. We brought the necessary rigging and crane lift for the job and then set out.

Car Lift Service

Once at the scene of the accident, we started with a scene assessment of the situation. We worked out the best way to approach rigging the car and removing it from the yard. Then, with a plan in place, we got to work on the recovery.

First, our team set about rigging the Mercedes Benz and securing it for its lift. Our team carefully lifted the car over the fence and loaded it onto the flatbed trailer. Finally, we secured the Mercedes Benz and transported it off the accident scene.

Accident Recovery for a Crashed Mercedes in Issaquah

Accident Recovery for a Crashed Mercedes in Issaquah

In this incident, on January 10, 2022, Team Pro-Tow responded to a call to fish a Mercedes SUV out of a steep embankment. The vehicle had flown over the concrete guardrail on I-90 in Issaquah, WA, prior and required accident recovery.

Crane Lift Recovery

At the scene, we saw the vehicle deep in the embankment, stuck in trees and mud. The SUV was severely damaged. Due to the steepness of the bank, we had to make a careful accident recovery plan to fish it out and get it back on the roadway.

First, our team of experienced operators rigged up the vehicle. It required rigging at the front end, and we ran the straps through the two back windows to stabilize the lift. Then, the operator slowly lifted the vehicle out of the ditch, over the cement guardrail, and back on the road.

With the crane lift recovery complete, we could tow the casualty away. Unfortunately, this Issaquah accident left some debris in the ditch. So, we got to work cleaning it up and restoring the site of the accident.

Wanted to Be Free: Mobile Trailer Recovery

Wanted to Be Free: Mobile Trailer Recovery

In this incident, on January 12, 2022, Team Pro-Tow was called in to help with a tipped-over worksite trailer. While on route, the trailer disconnected from the tractor and semi-truck pulling it and then tipped over on the road in Spokane.

Avoid Needing Accident Recovery

Upon arrival, we hooked up the worksite trailer and uprighted it. It’s always important to double-check that your trailer or load is properly hitched. It’s too easy for a trailer to slip free, leading to severe accidents or unwanted delays. While loading up the trailer, ensure the hitch size matches the coupler and that all hitch components are tight before you couple the trailer to the tow vehicle. After your trip, always do a post-trip inspection to ensure you don’t need accident recovery services while on the road.

Check the Trailer

Pre-trip inspections should always include a full trailer equipment inspection and hitch and towing equipment. In addition, preventative inspections and maintenance can help you avoid needing trailer recovery services.

If you do come across any trailer issues, call Motorplex for help. Motorplex offers on-site and mobile repairs, even for trailer equipment. Motorplex also offers preventative trailer maintenance.

Some issues can be signs of rust or bending, damaged safety chains, or a poorly greased hitch ball and coupler. On-the-road issues can be the trailer swaying, wobbling, or fishtailing. Proactive trailer maintenance will avoid needing trailer recovery help and keeps you safer.

Being proactive with self-checks and having a professional inspection is the best way to stay safe. While Team Pro-Tow will always come to help when called, it’s best to avoid getting in trouble and needing accident recovery services.

Silverado in Sumner Accident Recovery

Silverado in Sumner Accident Recovery

On December 16, 2020, Team Pro-Tow responded to an unfortunate accident in Sumner, WA. A Silverado pickup truck went off the road and landed in the ditch. The ditch was down a steep embankment, requiring a complex accident recovery.

Pickup Truck Accident Recovery

Our skilled and trained team arrived at the scene with the necessary equipment to perform a successful accident recovery. First, we rigged up the damaged pickup truck and prepared to lift it out of the ditch with our rotator. Then, our experienced operators carefully lifted the truck out of the ditch and back on the road.

Finally, we loaded the pickup onto a flatbed trailer so we could remove the casualty from the scene. After we cleared the area, traffic could flow freely once again.

What is Crane-Style Wrecker?

Sometimes people ask us if our vehicles are tow trucks or cranes? When we arrive at the scene to do some heavy lifting, we come with a crane-style wrecker called a rotator. Officially, rotators are not classified as a crane.

Rotators are essentially big cranes mounted on the deck of the truck. It can be used for lifting heavy machinery, flipped over semi-trucks, and trucks like the one mentioned in this incident. We use these vehicles for crane lift services.

Essentially, both rotators and cranes can haul some pretty substantial vehicles and equipment, and we consider that crane lift services. This equipment allows us to lift casualties in the tens of thousands of pounds and get some drivers and businesses out of sticky situations.
