Last Monday Flourtown Sunoco recieved a Police Duty Tow for a broken trailer on a rural road in Whitemarsh Township, the police requested that they come look at the damage before dispatching any equipment to the scene. I responded at the request of Tom Gerstlauer to overview the situation and make a reccomendation as to what equipment would be needed. We cam up with a recovery plan together that included unloading the trailer onto their Landoll and then towing the mess to their shop. As you can see we removed the roof out of the trailer,it was damaged beyond repair, and lifted the 22 rolls of paper out. Each one weighed 2003-2015 lbs. I was trying not to have to use the Air chshions but after we took the weight off of the rear the trailer strarted to buckle more cause of the weight on the center. So in 2 cushions went and they were inflated to bring up the belly of the trailer. The remaining load was removed and the trailer was towed from the scene. As you can see the EVIL PIN PULLER STRUCK ON THIS ONE, BUT IT WAS FUNNY HE HAD A UNIFORM ON THIS TIME.

Was this due to an improper load? Looks like the trailer just buckled. I sure enjoy seeing what you fellows do for a living. I have been very impressed with the skills and knowledge it takes to do these jobs safely and in a timely manner. Tip of the hat to all wrecker operators.

The unit was going down the road and a tree fell on top of the trailer according to a witness that was behind the truck. The township roadcrew removed some of the tree but we had to lift off the trunk off of the roof so that they could cut it up.


Scott what do you call him when he had a badge and a gun?
