A lot goes into spill response and effective truck accident recovery. Pro-Enviro is dispatched when there is a motor vehicle fuel or oil spill, or when a load containing other hazardous material is lost on the road. In these blog archives, you’ll discover what is entailed with spill recovery. It includes assessment, creating a complete heavy vehicle accident management plan, and then getting to work with spill containment, collection, disposal and remediation.
In many cases, our team at Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing is on the job too. Pro-Tow uses wrecker style cranes to help with the heavy lifting to get the accident site cleaned up so we can open it back up to local traffic. We also work alongside local agencies like the Washington State Police and Fire Departments, and the Washington Department of Transportation. If you want more information about what we do, contact us any time.
Back on March 4, 2015, Team Pro-Enviro and Team Pro-Tow were called to the scene of a collision involving two semi-trucks with full loads. A truck hauling 80,000 pounds of potting soil collided with one pulling 55,000 pounds of k-cups. It created a large accident recovery scene that took most of the night to recover. Because of the cargo involved, the incident also required cargo recovery.
On May 2, 2019, Team Pro-Tow was called to a semi-truck accident near Auburn, WA. The truck had overturned, and its trailer was carrying a whole load of steel that weighed more than 70,000 lbs. This wreck would be a challenging semi-truck accident recovery.
Hazardous spills are a severe danger to the environment and harm local wildlife or plants. If there is a waterway nearby, it also risks contaminating the water and becoming a danger to people. That’s why, when there’s a spill, Team Pro-Enviro is quick to respond.
A shifting load can cause an accident, delay, and requiring a load shift service means expensive downtime. Improper loading is the leading cause of a load shift. There are a few key things to avoid when loading your trailers or flatbeds. Preventing load shifts keeps drivers safe, trucks on the road and customers happy. It’s worth taking the extra time to ensure your cargo is loaded correctly.
On April 30, 2021, Team Pro-Tow got an emergency dispatch for a collision involving an F-350 pickup truck in the ditch. The accident was southbound on Highway 169 near Maple Valley, WA.

However, upon arrival, we saw that the truck's left front tire was ripped completely off, and the truck was leaking oil on the ground.
On May 13, 2021, we received a call regarding a hydraulic fluid spill at a construction site that needed immediate cleanup. Team Pro-Enviro quickly prepared all the necessary equipment and supplies and rushed to the location.
