On December 27, 2021, another incident with a load of potatoes required extensive semi-truck cleanup—a semi-truck hauling a full load of taters overturned near Sumner, WA. The truck went into the ditch, and its potato load went in with it, scattering mashed potatoes at the scene.
In this incident on May 9, 2022, an open flatbed trailer carrying a load of glass panes lost its load.

In this incident on February 6, 2019, Washington State Patrol called Team Pro-Enviro to help with a significant box truck recovery.

Several years ago, on December 1, 2014, Team Pro-Enviro and Team Pro-Tow responded to a fishy situation in Seattle, WA. A truck and trailer were cruising up the hill, and 11% grade, on Denny Way in downtown Seattle. The steep grade caused the load to shift and the trailer doors to open.
On February 26th, 2021, In this load recovery incident, we received a call from a customer on the WB I-90 exit 47 with a damaged trailer and impacted fuel lines. He explained his snow chain snapping caused the damage. Approximately 10-20 gallons of fuel were leaking on the roadway. On top of that, he was carrying a 38,000 lb load of expensive frozen beef. All-around speedy recovery was in order.
When your vehicle is in working order, and your journey goes without a hitch, there's no reason to expect a problem to occur. But issues can pop up without warning, and when they do, you need the right help for the situation. Not all accidents or incidents need heavy-duty towing or transport services. Sometimes an accident involves a leak or spill or shifted cargo that's becoming a risk.
