Default Truck in ditch.

Some of you know that I work in northern PA in the gas industry as a LPDMR. (licensed professional dihydrogen monoxide relocator)

This is one of the dangers we face everyday, some idiot semi-tanker forced this poor guy too close to the edge of the road. I guestimate his truck weighing about 64,000lbs loaded with about 5000 gallons of water.

Before anything can be done, the load has to be off-loaded via another truck. Which is pretty easy depending on your "angle" in the ditch.

Ouch, looks like a look of work to pull that rig out of the ditch.

Usually it only takes a wrecker or two to get them out. One to pull, and one to pull from the top of the tank.

Dan, last I knew, he'* on workers comp because of this.
