8 wheel tanker in RTC

An existing customer called us to a reported 8 wheel tank, fully loaded that had been involved in an RTC and was lying on its side.

We immediately dispatched our DAF heavy recovery unit to the scene

On arrival, the road was closed and after liaising with Police, Fire and Environment Agency Officers on scene we commenced recovery of the vehicle.

The vehicle was righted and winched to an accessible position. Due to the severity of the damage to the vehicle, various loose / damaged parts had to be removed to make safe for onward recovery. The vehicle was subsequently recovered back to the customer’s depot as requested.

The whole recovery was completed using just one heavy recovery vehicle and two of our highly skilled technicians.
