Trailer hits tree...and looses

Post by mick » Thu Feb 27, 2014 7:12 pm

This was an odd job, the driver had recently passed up this narrow road, made his delivery before returning back towards the motorway. The winds had been very strong that afternoon and a tree had started to fall but was tangled with others, reducing the available headroom. The driver wouldn't have expected this and was surprised when he saw everything disappear in the mirror behind him. As you can see, the trailer was totally flattened and the only way of dealing with it was to set the crane up, support, cut and reload the various components so that it could return to its depot.
