2 Different Saturday's, 2 Different Lawn Ornaments


Recommended Posts

The past 2 Saturday's have started out with early morning calls to remove new unwanted lawn decorations. The first one was a young girl who ran a stop sign, jumped the curb and travelled through about 60 feet of yard before totalling 2 innocent vehicles in the driveway and damaging a third. It hit with such force that her car was stuck in the first grand Marquis and the second Marquis was moved far enough that it almost hit the house. Not bad for a much lighter car than the 2 she hit.

Not wanting to do anymore damage to the poor guys nice lawn and not having any room to work, I set up on the main street and winched it all the way back to the road. This let the other company called have the entire driveway to work on getting the grand Marquis out.

Almost a week later to the minute I got a call for an impound. I arrived at the location looking for a Chevy pick up, but only found a Saturn that had the driver's side almost completely removed. The trooper pointed to the house 3 doors down and there sat another lawn ornament. After it stuck the car, the pick up travelled through 2 chain link fences and a stand of shrubs before hitting a tree that luckily stopped the truck just short of making an unannounced appearance into the house. The yard was completely walled in by shrubs and the passenger front wheel was only being held on by half a tie rod.

Only having a narrow driveway to set up in, I had to accomplish the recovery in a few different steps. I brought the truck out towards the opening in the shrubs as far as I could until I ran out of room.

Once it was lined up and out of room, I moved into the street to winch it the last few feet before I had to to spin it into the driveway.

I was planning on towing it once I got it to the street, but once I got the rear of the truck clear it became obvious that I was not going to have the time I needed to swing the front around to tow it on my own. I called my dad to bring me a bed while I brought the rear end around to line it up with the driveway. Once he arrived we loaded it up and I cleared the rest of the debris out of the driveway.
