International Box Truck Recovery Overturned in Preston, WA on I-90

International Box Truck Recovery Overturned in Preston, WA on I-90

Washington State Patrol calls on #teamprotow to recover an overturned 26 foot International box truck recovery loaded with packages destined to the Philippines for a critical overnight shipment.  After hitting a 6 point bull elk, the driver lost control near Preston, WA.in freezing and snowy temperatures.  Unfortunately, the elk died, however, the driver and passenger were okay.  The elk was salvaged and utilized under the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife salvage program that came into law on July 1, 2016.   Complicating the box truck recovery was the weight of the packages and the damage caused to the roof of the International Box truck necessitating an emergency cargo unload in difficult conditions.  Using a compact track loader from Bobcat Pacific Northwest in Auburn, WA, #teamprotow was able to reload all cargo packages and get them back headed for the Philippines.
