Energizing Interstate 5: Recovering a Trailer Full of Energy Drinks

Interstate 5 Towing – From Chaos to Cleanup

When Oregon State Police calls, we’re always happy to assist. They needed our expertise for a non-preference call involving a rollover accident one mile south of the Glendale, Oregon, offramp on Interstate 5 (northbound). Upon arrival, we found a scene that demanded our immediate attention: a tractor-trailer had rolled over, and the tractor had caught fire. The cargo? A trailer fully loaded with energy drinks.

Quick Action on the Scene

The Oregon State Police, Oregon Department of Forestry  FD, and the Rural Metro FD had already arrived at the scene. We knew we had to work hand-in-glove with the authorities. Our team of 10 sprang into action, prepared for a long day ahead. The task was monumental: the trailer needed to be unloaded by hand before we could even begin thinking about recovery.

The Cleanup

With precision and teamwork, we manually unloaded the trailer. Next came the task of righting the trailer and transporting it, along with the remains of the burned tractor, back to our yard. The cleanup required us to winch the remains to the road, load them onto our Landoll, and dispose of the remaining loose material and debris. After 14 hours of hard work, the site was cleared, and the road was again safe for travelers. Wow, what a day…
