Serious Crash, Minor Injuries

Recommended Posts

3-30-07

Received a call from NBPD to respond to Park St at Richmond St for a heavy duty tow. Apparantly, a GMC ramp truick was travelling east on Park and swerved to avoid a collision and struck a light pole, destroying the truck. The police also stated taht the front axle was completely ripped off and the tires were under the fuel tank. We responded with our 60 ton rotator as well as one of our Landoll units to carry the ramp back to oru shop. Upon our arrival, we had to spread speedy dry over the entire area to prevent our crew from working in fluids that were spilled. We then set chains on the front and rear sections of the chassis under the ramp body and then lfited the truck straight up off the light post. We then had to pull the front axle that wa almost cokpletely ripped of forward and then chain it in place so the tires and wheels were away from the fuel tanks. We then completed the the lift and backed the Landoll trailer under the destroyed truck. Our crew then cleaned the entire area. The ramp truck was then trasported to our Freetown location. Once at the shop, we used both of our HD Volvo loaders to lift the truck off the Landoll. The ramp trucks wheels in the rear were locked up from the impact, the transmission was pushed back and cracked, and the drive shaft was jammed back into the rear end chuck.
