On a culvert


Recommended Posts

Received a call from the SD for a vehicle that had gone off the road after swerving  to miss a deer. This is what we found as the deputy and I arrived about the same time. The Durango was almost straight up and down with about 2 feet of the hood in the water. The large steel culvert was over 8 feet in diameter and backed up somewhat. Decided to just pick it up to avoid damaging the oil pans to avoid leaks into the water way.

Picked it up with the Century

At this point I had to put a 6x6 on the stinger and push the Dodge away from me as the front tires were hooked on the culvert. Then just lift and set down on the ground.

Then got the flatbed to haul back to the shop.

I didn't want to try it with a bed and end up doing damage. They ended up totaling the car but it wasn't because I did a lot more damage. I also didn't want to end up with oil and fuel in the water.

No point in taking the liability for someone elses mistake!
