Bus Towing Eugene

March Bus Towing in Eugene for Baseball Team

Crockett’s Interstate (541) 554-6731
Back in March, bus towing in Eugene was needed. Some of you might remember a bus carrying Elmira High School baseball players that crashed through a fence and into a tree and required bus towing. As a reminder, the driver and one student were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Everything checked out okay for all those involved.

We just wanted to share the pictures of the bus towing and let people know how we got the bus back onto the road. We used a rotator to lift the bus out. Our guys strapped up the bus and the rotator literally lifted the bus off the tree and over the ditch and also over the fence. Bus towing recovery accomplished.

We are just doing a bit of chest-thumping to our guys on a job well done. Here is to Tim and Greg and the entire team for accepting a great bus towing challenge. Cheers.

Semi on Side Heavy Duty Towing Operation

Finding Hay When the Heavy Duty Towing Shines

Crockett’s Interstate( 541) 554-6731

Heavy duty towing was likely the last thing on a semi driver’s mind last week when he flipped his truck and trailer. Perhaps he was sleepy. We don’t know. HIs semi was hauling two trailers filled with hay. The semi and both trailers ended up in a ditch by the side of a gravel road. The heavy duty towing occurred near Eugene, Oregon.

The accident was initiated by a semi-truck driver who had veered off the side of the road. As the semi leaned, the lead trailer and pup trailer just behind it leaned as well. All three pieces of equipment flipped. Over 60,000 pounds of hay, two trailers, and a cab made for a complicated heavy duty tow and off-road recovery. Crockett’s Interstate heavy duty towing was called in to the rescue.

Crockett’s team of five first disconnected the pup trailer and unloaded the hay. They then connected the cab and trailer to a heavy wrecker and a supporting tow truck. In one motion, they turned the cab and trailer. The pup trailer was handled separately, which reduced damage and allowed for a safer, speedier recovery. The entire heavy duty towing procedure occurred in two hours.

Big Rig Towing – May 30

Walking the Line and Big Rig Towing

Crockett’s Interstate (541) 554-6731

Johnny Cash might have been playing on the radio for a big rig towing situation on Link Road this past week. The big rig towing problem happened on a narrow stretch of road where the difference between driving through cleanly and ending up in a ditch is a margin of less than 12 inches.

A Freightliner loaded with lumber tried to walk the line of Link Road, but veered an inch too far off the highway and ended up driving into the adjacent ditch.

Crockett’s Interstate Towing arrived within 10 minutes of receiving the big rig towing call. Crockett’s Interstate Towing used a 60-ton rotator to lift the trailer, and a 50-ton wrecker to winch up the trailer and cab as one single unit.
