I did not know trucks could fly...
« on: January 07, 2019, 07:30:55 PM »
This truck was laying quite a ways from Highway 3 in Scott's Coulee by Brocket.  No hole in the fence, no tracks in the sand.  He must have been going at quite a speed and lost control in the bend.

In my professional opinion, that's a pretty nasty looking wreck there. :-\
I'd really like to sit and watch the recovery operation, I'm sure that would be quite fascinating.
Nice catch.

It would depend on how soft the ground is. If the ground is frozen, recovery might not be that difficult.

If it was spring you'd need one of these!

Recovery was done today.  On this pic the bobcat is pushing the side of the trailer back up.  In the picture above you see the inside of the trailer, the side is on the ground beside the truck.



At this point the trailer is unloaded and put on a flat deck.  Environment cleanup truck is on site, heavy wrecker is on site to take away the tractor once they get it out the ravine.

Nothing surprises me any more. I drove to town the other night to go haul snow and I had to pass 4 tractor trailers in different spots on Hwy 17. It was snowing but not enough to effect visibility. And they each were doing 40 KPH.

And the asphalt was heavily salted and bare. You could see the lines, and not one of them was on their side of the center line.

I am really amazed these guys can make it across the country.
