Chickens on the highway in Savannah – tow truck company needed
On Wednesday May 27th, just before rush hour, 56.000 lbs. of frozen chicken was scattered across the highway in Savannah and a tow truck company was needed. Chicken rolled over on the highway as the driver made a bad turn. Luckily, the driver didn’t get hurt and the chickens, well, they were frozen from the start, so there was no harm done there either. Tim’s Towing & Recovery was contacted by the Savannah Police Department for immediate assistance. Our expert tow truck company team made their way to the site straight away and along with them, they brought a 50 ton wrecker, a 60 ton rotator and a bobtail. Within 90 minutes, the towing team had the road cleared which was quite a challenge with rush hour coming in. In 3 hours there was not a trace left of this peculiar event that had taken place on the highway in Savannah. Our tow truck company team used Sonetics headsets to communicate on the scene, keeping everyone safe and informed while dealing with the overturned truck and all that chicken. Both the semi and the cab had rolled over to the side and they were in desperate need of professional semi towing. With the help of our wrecker, rotator, towing cables, straps and hooks, Tim’s Towing & Recovery team winched the cab and trailer upright on its 18 wheels. The team used the bobtail to tow the trailer and that was that – the job was done and the chicken incident was now over and done with. We are super proud of our team, dealing with this mess during rush hour. You did a great job once again!
