Fog and trains don’t mix when it comes to railway crossings and vehicles of any size.

Fog related accidents usually result in head-on and rear-end collisions, two of the most common fog related incidents. A recent study showed that more instances of fog related crashes occurred in the early morning hours from December to February.

Weather.com reports that annual averages are 31,385 crashes resulting in 511 deaths. Read more fog related facts on The Weather Channel https://wxch.nl/2uqbzsC

This rig ran amiss of a freight train in the fog and became of many like incidents that occur across the country in poor driving conditions.

Fortunately the driver was not injured and Big Rig Towing was able to use their 75-ton rotator to clear the wreckage and get the train on its way and the driver to safety.

Big Rig Towing to the rescue!

Not all Big Rig Towing jobs are the recovery of crashed or stuck rigs. Sometimes it’s as simple as a big, heavy snowfall.

When a parked rig has a large amount of snow on its roof it can’t just take off down the road. If the truck gets up to speed and a few hundred pounds of snow comes flying off, it could cause damage to the vehicles following, or worse, send a trailing vehicle into an oncoming lane. Definitely not a good situation.

Not all solutions have to be complicated hookups or rotator coordinated events either. This snow removal campaign was remedied by hooking up a volunteer shoveller to the rotator and hoisting them on top of the rig to get rid of its snowy burden.

Keep Big Rig’s number – 1 (866) 398-7444 – on hand and call for IMMEDIATE 24/7 service if you find yourself in an emergency situation! 

 

Dedicated to the Heavy Duty Towing & Recovery Industry

According to Wikipedia towing is the process of coupling two or more objects together so that they may be pulled by a designated power source or sources, one behind the other. The towing source (lead object) is usually a truck or other motorized land vehicle. The coupling may consist of a chain, rope, bar, integrated platform, or some other means of keeping the two objects together while in motion.

Big Rig Towing specializes in, and are dedicated solely to, the heavy duty towing and recovery industry. What we do is tow heavy trucks, transport trailers, big rigs, transport trucks, 18 wheelers and large equipment. We  often have to make use of our 75 ton rotator to lift overturned trailers and many other heavy objects related to rig accidents.
