Overturned Dodge 3500 down an embankment

Recommended Posts

This was a call from the State Police for a pickup overturned down an embankment a few months back.

 

The fire chief called and let me know that it was a Dodge Dually over a guard rail with a large amount of debris. It was a Sunday morning around 8 am. Since I happen to live just around the corner and didn't have a truck home that weekend I responded direct in my personal car. My dad went to the shop and got our 98 international 12 ton wrecker and we called in two of our other operators one in a 2011 Dodge 5500 mpl40 and our 2013 Hino flatbed.

 

We worked with the fire company to cut the damaged section of guard rail and remove the debris that was scattered through the woods. We used our two wreckers and a few Holmes trees to move the truck back ward toward the open section of the guardrail and roll it back into its wheels in one motion. It was then pulled fully onto the roadway and loaded onto our Hino. The rest of the debris was piled into the back of the truck. The owner had us transport it direct to his farm not far away. The recovery bill was paid in full upon delivery. It took a bit of explaining for him to understand the fees involved in this recovery after his initial "sticker shock" when he saw the invoice. But in the end he understood and was happy. After we squared away I treated our crew to a good breakfast at a local deli.
