Car Hauler Needs Heavy Truck Accident Recovery

Car Hauler Needs Heavy Truck Accident Recovery

In this incident, on January 10, 2022, a sizeable semi-car hauler carrying a load of vehicles had a severe collision with a passenger vehicle. Team Pro-Tow received the call to help with the heavy truck accident recovery. We selected the necessary equipment for the heavy truck towing and headed out to the scene.

Car Hauler Accident Recovery

Once there, we did a scene assessment before starting the recovery work. A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh around 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. In addition, the hauler was carrying a full load of vehicles, which meant that Pro-Tow needed to use our heavy-duty equipment for the job.

Our mobile crane service can lift up to 50 tons of weight, so even a fully loaded car carrier is no problem. In addition to the 50-ton mobile cranes, we have every size of tow truck, flatbed, and certified staff to provide professional solutions to every problem. Thanks to our specialized equipment, our Team Pro-Tow can get nearly any sized vehicle out of a bad situation.

In this incident, we worked safely and efficiently to recover the car hauler and assisted with this heavy truck accident recovery in any way we could.

24-Hour Emergency Towing

In addition to mobile crane services, we offer out-of-area transport, 21-hour on-site service and roadside repair. Our goal in every situation is to provide safe, top-quality repairs on all makes and models of vehicles. We work promptly to help with heavy truck towing and ensure everything goes smoothly and safely. Whenever you need roadside repairs, towing or support, you can always call and trust Pro-Tow for support.

Leaning to the Left Box Truck Recovery

Leaning to the Left Box Truck Recovery

On June 11, 2021, Team Pro-Tow was called to help with a commercial box truck that had gone into the ditch. State Patrol requested a Class B Wrecker to help handle the heavy-duty towing, which we dispatched to the scene.

Box Truck Recovery

Once we arrived at the scene, we assessed the condition of the box truck. The truck had left the roadway and climbed the embankment on the right side of the highway before rolling over onto the driver’s side. With approval from WSP, we dispatched an HD Rotating crane to help in the recovery.

Team Pro-Enviro deployed the rigging on the rear of the casualty and lifted it with the HD Rotating Crane Style Wrecker. We placed the truck’s rear on the roadway shoulder, repeated the rigging on the front and shifted it to the shoulder.

Heavy-Duty Towing & Spill Cleanup

When the vehicle was ready for heavy-duty towing, Team Pro-Enviro stepped in to handle the cleanup. First, we dispatched an Environmental truck, Flatbed Truck, and Vac Trailer to clean up the fuel and oil spill in the ditch. Then using containment socks, absorbent pads, and vac trailer supplies, Team Pro-Enviro cleared and cleaned the spill.

They also removed approximately 1900 gallons of mixed contaminated soil and liquid. As with any clean-up job, Team Pro-Enviro worked carefully until everything was back to normal.

Meanwhile, Team Pro-Tow took the casualty back to the storage yard and unloaded it in a secured storage area. We also placed a contamination containment pond under the vehicle to catch any drips or spills. Finally, all equipment to its original location and condition and completed the paperwork. This box truck recovery was complete!

Jackknifed Semi-Truck Needs Accident Recovery

Jackknifed Semi-Truck Needs Accident Recovery

In this incident, on January 7, 2022, we received a call from Washington State Police about a jackknifed semi-accident west of Davenport, WA. Because of the icy road conditions, we stopped by the shop to get an appropriate truck and bring a Rotating Crane Style HD Wrecker. 

Accident Recovery

Once we arrived at the scene, our team spoke with the Trooper to plan. Team Pro-Tow used Special Equipment Support Unit to block the westbound lanes while the Trooper blocked the eastbound lanes. With traffic secured, our team got to work.

We set up the Rotating Crane Style HD Wrecker and the rigging needed for the accident recovery. Team Pro-Tow put one rim sling on the trailer bogies and another strap on the rear axle. Then, working carefully, we pulled the truck and front of the trailer up and onto the road. Once we could reposition the truck, we could open the westbound lane for traffic to flow.

Heavy-Duty Towing

With the truck in position, Team Pro-Tow put away the rigging and repositioned the truck to hook up to the tractor. As we were hooking up, we noticed the fuel tank was compromised. To prevent any further spillage, we contained the fuel before continuing.

We cleared the road closure items and moved to the next safe turn spot to break the unit apart for heavy-duty towing. While our team waited for the truck to arrive, we kept the trailer supported because of damage to the landing gear.
When the heavy-duty truck arrived, we hooked up the truck to the trailer and returned to the yard. Once back, we unloaded the tractor put some pond under the truck to collect any oil and liquid that could contaminate the yard.

Team Pro-Tow successfully cleared this Davenport accident recovery.

Semi-Truck Towing for Tipper on 18

Semi-Truck Towing for Tipper on 18

On May 28, 2021, we responded to a call for a semi-truck and trailer in a ditch eastbound on Highway 18, west of the i-90 near Snoqualmie, Washington. Unfortunately, the truck was in a collision and ended up off the road. It can be impossible to get out without heavy truck towing services in situations like these.

Pick and Pass Recovery

When we arrived at the scene, we saw that the entire passenger side of the semi-truck was in the ditch, and the trailer was leaning heavily away from the roadway. Team Pro-Tow decided that a Pick and Pass play would be the best semi-truck recovery strategy.

We placed the HD Rotating Crane Style Wreck at the rear of the truck and trailer. Our team planned to pick up the back end of the trailer and swing it over onto the road. We also put an HD C Class Wrecker at the front of the truck to pull it out of the ditch. Before starting the semi-truck towing, we removed the bumper to prevent further damage.

Rigged Up for Semi-Truck Towing

An integral part of every recovery is proper planning and securing the rigging. Team Pro-Tow used factory front bumper hooks to lift the truck’s front out of the ditch. We also had a red endless loop strap in a bridal configuration.

Then, we used rim slings on the rear wheels of the trailer and blue endless loop straps in a basket configuration. Altogether, we rigged four lines to the trailer load. We carefully inspected all the rigging to ensure it was ready for a heavy truck towing service.

Truck and Trailer Back on the Road

The winches were engaged to begin the semi-truck recovery very slowly and carefully. Simultaneously, we pulled the truck out of the ditch and lifted the trailer back on the road. This recovery was successful, and we got that casualty back on the roadway in one piece!

Unfortunately, the truck wouldn’t start due to low fuel tanks. The driver’s side fuel tank had gone into the passenger side’s tank due to the lean. This customer needed heavy truck towing services. We took it to our secured yard and performed a requested load shift service.

Another successful recovery and cleared call by Team Pro-Tow!

Camper Trailer Rollover Requires RV Recovery

Camper Trailer Rollover Requires RV Recovery

On June 30, 2021, Team-Pro Tow got a call about an accident involving a rolled-over camper trailer on the I-90 near Issaquah. We saw that the RV was blocking the highway when we got there. So our skilled operators got to work creating an RV recovery plan.

Rigging Up the RV

After creating the recovery plan, it was time to start rigging up the very long camper trailer. We carefully wrapped and attached heavy-duty straps around the RV. We wanted to secure the casualty and lift it without causing further damage.

Finally, we cautiously lifted the RV onto a flatbed trailer using a heavy-duty crane-style wrecker. Then it was ready for RV towing in Issaquah. Once the trailer was away from the scene, our team cleaned up any debris left from the accident.

RV Recovery Complete

Team-Pro Tow moved the damaged RV away from the scene, allowing traffic to flow freely again. Unless given specific instructions, we bring casualties to our secure storage yard. From there, the customer can decide what to do with the vehicle or RV in this case.

Tipper in the Ditch: Semi-Truck Recovery

Tipper in the Ditch: Semi-Truck Recovery

In this incident, on May 28th, 2021, We received an emergency dispatch about a collision involving a fully loaded semi-truck that had gone off the roadway and into the ditch. We received pictures of the incident, so based on those, we put together our equipment. 

We sent an HD Crane Style Wrecker and HD C Class Wrecker and set out this heavy truck towing job.

Semi-Truck Recovery

Once we arrived and did a scene assessment, we decided that a Pick and Pass play would best recover the unit. The casualty had the steer axle out of the ditch, and the trailer was heavily leaning on the roadway. First, we placed the HD Rotating Crane Style Wrecker at the rear of the casualty to pick and swing the trailer back onto the road. Then, we placed HD C Class Wrecker at the front to help pull the casualty out of the ditch. Unfortunately, we discovered an air leak blocking the brake release. So, we had to plug the air first to fix the cause, which was the broken air dryer.

Now the work began. We got the semi-truck recovery ready by rigging the HD Rotating Crane Style Wrecker in a Pick and Pass configuration using loop straps and rear tandem sliders. Then, we rigged the HD C Class Wrecker to the front using frame chains in a bridle configuration. 

Heavy Truck Towing

As always, we double-checked all the straps and chains before picking the Pick and Pass maneuver. Then, slowly and safely, we engaged the winches to start the recovery. We steadily pulled the casualty out of the ditch while the rear was lifted onto the roadway.

The driver opted out of heavy truck towing, so we returned our equipment to its original condition and location in the yard. We then returned to the yard and completed the paperwork for this successful Pick and Pass semi-truck recovery.
