We received a call for this heavy duty rollover. We immediately dispatched myself in my wrecker as the recovery supervisor, a heavy and a medium duty truck. Upon arrival I found this crash truck on it's side with a large debris field. There were 2 passenger vehicles involved, however another towing company was dispatched to handle then. I immediately cancelled our medium duty and told him to bring a pick up with brooms, shovels, and barrels for the debris.

Once my heavy arrived we were given the go ahead to start the recovery. I used my truck to remove the mail box so we didn't crush it then proceeded to upright the truck. As it didn't roll all the way onto it's side the recovery was very simple.

Once on it's wheels we hooked up to the front end and started cleaning the debris and fluids. It slid across all 4 lanes of the highway, leaving a trail of glass, fluids, and assorted truck parts in it's wake. Between my blower and a couple brooms we had the mess contained quickly and were on our way back to the shop.

I'm pretty sure it came from up your way, but I don't know what the equipment is. It's our drivers baby though, he loves this truck more than his kids lol.

I'm pretty sure we built that truck. Last I had heard, it was down in Atlantic City, Point Auto I believe it was. Then lost track from there. It was our 1st hydraulic wrecker at Schlier's. I want to say it is a 1985 Superliner, all white....350 Mack, Reyco suspension, a 25 ton Wrecker's International....they were power up & gravity down.

That definitely looks like it. This truck has been a little monster, I've never seen it fail to pick up anything in all the years we've had it.
