Semi towing company, Ed’s 24 Hour Service recently came to the rescue after an accident in Marion, OH. A truck ran a stop sign and t-boned an SUV, sending both vehicles through the guard rail. The vehicles were a 2023 Freightliner Cascadia and a Dry Van. The truck jackknifed hard into the bottom of the ditch resulting in the guard stuck in the drive tires and the rear axle hanging up on a drainage pipe.
The semi towing company immediately dispatched a team of 5 to the location on Harding Hwy W & Marion Williamsport Rd. A heavy duty wrecker service van and the rotator were sent by the semi towing company to clean up this recovery. In addition, 5 members of the semi towing company were dispatched to the scene. This included four drivers and one service tech.
To start the job, the semi towing company first separated the trailer that was loaded with 25k pounds from the tractor. The semi towing company crew then swung it around the rear of the rotator, placed it on the roadway, and hooked it to the road tractor.
With the cab pushed off the frame of the tractor, unfortunately, it would not straighten up as it was lifted out of the ditch. So, the semi towing company team members rotated it to the opposite side of the truck and uprighted it as it sat down on the pavement. Further cleanup of the spilled oil was completed with the mini excavator and dump truck. The job took the semi towing company 1 hr and 40 minutes to complete.
