Commercial Towing Service in Savannah

Head-on Impact Leads to Commercial Towing Service

A commercial towing service was needed in Savannah when a vehicle had a violent accident with a tractor trailer, head-on in Savannah on July 29th. The impact was pretty severe. It occurred just behind the front wheel and fuel tank on the driver’s side of the tractor trailer as you can see in the photos.  I-95 was backed up, while Tim’s, the commercial towing service, managed the tow and recovery. 

Tim’s Towing decided to separate the container from the cab and tow them separately.  In addition, for safety reasons, the commercial towing service team from Tim’s pumped the fuel from the fuel tank into a drum.   Once, the fuel had been moved into the drum, the commercial towing service used a rollback to transport the drum that contained the fuel. This one was complicated….thanks to the George Highway Patrol for their help.
