Earlier last month, on March 8th, 2020 the SR18 was closed. When a highway closes, semi-trucks will take alternative routes to get where they’re going. In some cases, the driver might not be as familiar with the new route. An unfamiliar road and tight turn was the problem in this semi-truck accident recovery incident.
#WashingtonStatePatrol #GoAarmy and #WSDOT calls on PRO-TOW to help with a tire chain for the Army Convoy on I-405 on Monday March 25, 2019 during rush hour traffic. After the convoy suffered a flat tire, the team quickly went to work to replace the tire. Unfortunately, due to its size the convoy was blocking lane 1 on NB I-405 in a busy area and a busy time of the day. After suffering a failure with the team’s jack lifting the 40,000 pound vehicle, the command called on Pro-Tow with their 50 Ton Rotator crane style heavy duty wrecker. The crane style wrecker was able to make quick and safe work with the overhead lift rotating over the hood. Not blocking the highway, minimal lane closure, and huge lifting capacity got the team back in the convoy and traffic flowing normally in #RentonWa. #Millerindustries #teamprotow #xtrema #phillystran #crosbyindustries
