December 23, 2020 proved to be an extremely busy day for the Team. Truck S17 made an overnight run to Watkins Glen
NY. At approximately 0405 we were contacted to respond to Route 272 in the area of Herr’s Angus Farm for a tractor trailer
that had lost control on the ice, jack knifed, went through a fence and was reported to be off the roadway in a field. Truck’s
R6, 90 and Null’s Recovery & Site Restoration responded and handled this incident.
At 0652, we were again contacted to respond to a jack knifed tractor trailer. This time on Lincoln Hwy in the area of Quaker
Lane. This incident also involved a passenger vehicle and a fuel spill. Trucks R6, 90, C31, and C32 along with Null’s
Recovery & Site Restoration responded and handled this incident.
At 0853, we were contacted to respond to Route 10 at the Bottom of State Hill for a loaded tanker that had overturned.
Trucks R6, R8, T11 with TL11, and Null’s Recovery & Site Restoration responded to this incident.
Upon arrival, the tank was separated from the chassis, laying upside down, and leaking. R6 and R8 quickly worked together
to upright the tank and stop the leak, while NR&SR worked to contain and clean-up the spill. The tank was loaded onto TL11
and transported from the scene to be off-loaded.
