90lbs of Wood Debris Spills in a Semi-Truck Accident in Kirkland, WA

Our Pro-Enviro division responds to the scene when there is diesel fuel, oil or other vehicle fluids spilled after a semi-truck accident. They weren’t needed in this case. This semi-truck end dump truck lost over 90lbs of wood debris, which thankfully, is completely biodegradable.

The end dump truck flipped onto its side during rush hour traffic on Interstate 405, north of Bellevue in Kirkland, WA. They required a prompt semi-truck tow service to get the truck back on its wheels and moved, so traffic could start flowing again. Our team provided this service, developing a recovery plan upon arriving at the semi-truck accident and executing it safely and effectively.

What is an End Dump Truck?

Almost all dump trucks use a hydraulic system to lift the bed used to transport material, but these systems come in various configurations. The most common dump truck will have an open-boxed bed that is in the rear of the truck. This box is lifted by hydraulic rams at the front, thus dumping the material out of the back of it.

An end dump truck also called a semi-trailer end dump truck, has the hydraulic dump system on a trailer that is pulled by the tractor. The dumping system is not attached to the truck itself. In the US, most end dump trucks have a 2-axle trailer with dual tires that is pulled by a 3-axle semi-tractor. The beds on these trailer end dumps are massive. They are used when more debris or material needs to be moved than a regular dump truck could carry.

The disadvantage? They’re unstable when raised in the dumping position. If the ground isn’t level, you typically couldn’t or shouldn’t use a semi-trailer end dump truck for the job. It could result in a semi-truck accident. Because this type of truck is larger and its operating parts more complex, they require a specialized semi-truck tow service to get them upright again if flipped. As always, Pro-Tow was up to the challenge.

Semi Truck Wreck

Semi Truck Wreck

#teamprotow called on to clear a semi-truck accident in Auburn, WA after it overturns during the afternoon commute snarling traffic. The truck was carrying a full load of steel and weighed more than 70,000lbs, and complicating the recovery was diesel and other motor vehicle fluids that needed to be quickly cleaned to prevent runoff to the nearby storm water collection sites. WSDOT, WSP, and Valley Regional Fire were on scene to assist with coordination in what WSDOT termed a Major Incident Tow and activating an enhanced quick clearance protocol. Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt and the recovery was quickly cleared and the motor vehicle fluid spill was cleaned preventing other mitigation requirements.
