It was a smelly day for Tim’s Heavy Towing Savannah team! A fully loaded garbage truck was making its way to a landfill when disaster struck. The garbage truck had moved over to the side of the road to leave space for another incoming truck. Unfortunately, the driver of the truck didn’t realize how close he was to the edge of the road!
Before he knew it, the truck had gone over the edge of a roadside ditch and completely TIPPED OVER! Thankfully, the driver was not hurt and managed to get out of the truck. He called Tim’s Towing and Recovery over to help upright the truck and get him back on the road.
The heavy towing team arrived on scene within 30 minutes of being called. They brought a 60-ton rotator as well as a 50-ton heavy wrecker to assist with the garbage truck recovery. Something tells us that once the team got a good whiff of those garbage juices leaking from the truck, they wished they brought nose plugs!
The heavy towing Savannah team used their powerful rotator to upright the garbage truck. With the rotator holding it in place, they then used their heavy wrecker to winch it out of the ditch and back onto the road.
The truck had surprisingly little visible damage considering it had just tipped over. That being said, it’s always better to be safe than sorry so the tow truck operators towed the truck to a nearby repair facility to get it looked over.
Great work out there team. You responded to the accident quickly and completed a flawless recovery! Keep up the amazing work … and don’t forget your nose plugs next time!
