Tundra on the Prowl Needs Accident Recovery

Tundra on the Prowl Needs Accident Recovery

On September 24th, 2020, In this incident, Team Pro-Tow received a call about a multi-vehicle collision. A Toyota Pickup with a travel trailer had become stuck on the concrete barrier and needed rescuing. We called WSP about the situation and got permission to use the emergency turn around and shoulder for the accident recovery.

Truck Rescue

The Fire Department had arrived ahead of us and contained a fuel leak from the truck. The Toyota pickup was also still attached to its trailer, so a planned accident recovery process was ordered. The owner approved the rescue method, and we sent for a Heavy Mobile Rotating Crane Truck to help with the work. Once all the equipment arrived, our skilled team got straight to work.

To avoid further damaging the truck, we used spreader bars to lift the vehicle off the barrier. While our team handled the accident recovery, Pro-Enviro controlled the spill cleanup. We successfully lifted the truck, but then a new problem sprung up. The fuel from the tank began pouring freely onto the road. Pro-Enviro quickly handled the emergency spill cleanup and re-dispatched it for the Fire Department because of the safety risk of a fire.

Up And Away

With the truck and trailer safely lifted and the spill contained, we returned the combination onto the roadway. From there, we separated the truck from the trailer and loaded it onto the flatbed. For extra safety, we used a four-point tie-down.

We took the trailer back to the storage yard and all absorbent materials and debris from the spill cleanup. All equipment was returned to its original condition and location, with meticulous care to ensure everything was immaculate.

With all the paperwork finished, we got the cleared call. Another spill cleanup and accident recovery handled with skill and ease by Team Pro-Tow and Team Pro-Enviro.

Smashing Fences: Truck Accident Recovery

Smashing Fences: Truck Accident Recovery

On July 28th, 2020, A loaded commercial truck and trailer left the roadway, hit a tree, and collapsed power pulls down on it. We received an emergency dispatch from the King County Sheriff’s office asking for an emergency incident response. This truck accident required specialized equipment that Pro-Tow could provide.

Truck Accident Recovery Initiated

After accessing the situation and reporting to the incident command, we made a plan for truck accident recovery. We had our heavy-duty rotating crane-style wrecker, a heavy-duty class tow truck, and a heavy-duty Landoll trailer. We realized that we needed an enclosed dump trailer to move excessive debris left from the accident. There was a lot of damage to the property, including a completely smashed fence.

Lifting the Truck

Because the truck had hit a power pole, this emergency incident response required extra safety precautions. We safely set up the work scene and installed the rigging to lift the truck. It had so much damage that nearly any movement caused problems with this truck accident recovery. We used multi-parted lines to allow cradling and a gentle lift to the Landoll trailer.

Hold the Phone

There was a low voltage main terminal connection box on the scene that our team needed to avoid. Crane lifting the truck allowed us to avoid the terminal and prevent damage or disconnecting hundreds of phone lines. The phone line contractor shared that our careful lifting saved them 40 to 50 hours of labor reconnecting the lines had damage occurred. Paying attention to detail is essential for effective emergency incident response.

Cleanup Time

Once we had the truck out of there, it was time to start the cleanup of extensive property damage. Vehicle fluids and debris were scattered all over the truck accident recovery scene. Spill cleanup was required for coolant, engine oil, transmission oil, and other hazardous materials. We got to work cleaning that up, loading debris from the broken fence and other property casualties into the dump trailer.

Bringing in the Truck

Team Pro-Tow brought the wrecked truck to our secured storage yard. We had to carefully lift it again with the crane to get it into the yard. We installed spill containment units to prevent stormwater contamination from the damaged truck. Our team transported the waste to a manifest site.

Another truck accident recovery was completed and cleared by Team Pro-Tow!
