Percival Semi Tow Truck Rescues Overturned Truck
When a tractor trailer overturns, it creates quite a mess. Situations like this call for a trusted semi tow truck team with the equipment and expertise to handle the job. Benefiel is just that – providing semi towing services in Percival, Iowa and surrounding areas. We recently completed a large job that demonstrated this.
At approximately 1:50 PM, the semi tow truck team at Benefiel Towing received a call from the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office. The circumstances involved a tractor trailer accident near Percival, Iowa.
We immediately dispatched two rotators – a 75-ton rotator and 35-ton rotator – as well as a 30-ton integrated wrecker with air cushions, our heavy duty incident response unit, a heavy duty road service truck, a light duty rollback, and a scene supervisor unit.
Upon arrival at the scene, we found a tractor trailer that had rolled over into the northeast ditch at the intersection of 210th Ave and 230th St. The tractor was laying across the road and the trailer was laying across the ditch with a compromised lower wall and roof rail.
The semi tow truck team made the decision to recover the unit using air cushions. We prepped the unit for recovery and began placing air cushions. We rigged both rotators to straps placed under the affected trailer.
This was in addition to rigging our integrated wrecker to upright the tractor while keeping it slightly ahead of its load. Once the bags were at their fully extended height, the rotator winched the tractor up onto the road. Then, the integrated wrecker carefully towed the damaged unit to Benefiel Truck Repair in Hamburg, Iowa.
With all of our heavy duty towing equipment and knowledge, this was a large job, but one that we were able to complete successfully. Great work to our semi towing services crew!
