Details of Trailer Driver Ignoring ‘No Truck Route’ and Calls Semi Towing Service for Roadside Assistance
Semi towing service, Paddack’s Wrecker recently assisted a truck driver in Fairland, Indiana, a town that is located southeast of Indianapolis. The driver was driving a fully loaded tractor trailer when he ran into an incident that required him to call a semi towing service.
The driver was driving down a county road with a “no truck route” sign posted on the road. Instead of adhering to the warning, the truck went down the road anyway and ended up in a situation that required a semi towing service.
Because the driver went down a road that could not handle trucks, he was unable to turn the corner. Because of this, his fully loaded trailer dropped in a ditch and he needed to call a semi towing service for assistance.
The Paddack’s Wrecker semi towing service promptly responded to his call. The semi towing service dispatched 1 crew member and a 75 ton rotator to the location of the recovery. Once a semi towing service crew member arrived at the scene, he assessed the situation and got to work.
The semi towing service technician started the job by setting up the 75 ton rotator up behind the truck. He reached over keeping a low boom angle due to power lines around the area. From there, the semi towing service crew member linked to the back of the trailer by rigging a strap on the outside of the trailer. He then married it together around the back of the trailer for leverage.
To complete the semi towing service, the Paddack’s crew member attached another line down to back of the trailer on the driver’s side and ran a drag winch out to winch it over once the trailer was upright. After the trailer was rigged up, he picked the trailer up in level position and used the drag winch and boom at the same time to swing the trailer back onto the roadway.
The entire semi towing service job took 45 minutes and thankfully, there was no damage down to the vehicle. The truck driver was able to get back on the road and complete his delivery.
