Brewer EMS Help Fix Loading Mishap For A Very Expensive Truck
Let me start this by saying very clearly that I couldn't park a truck on top of a trailer like this either. So I am not judging whomever did make this mistake. I am, however, commending all the parties who were involved in preventing this from becoming a bigger disaster than it was.
This weekend, the Brewer Fire Department posted details about an unusual call on their Facebook Page. It described a situation that took place Saturday on Wilson Street in Brewer. Apparently Brewer Police and Fire were called to help control traffic, after a new "very expensive" (as they put it) Dodge Ram TRX, which had been situated on and auto transport trailer, had come free from its spot on top of the trailer, and ended up hanging off the right side, kind of dangling in mid air. (We looked it up, those trucks start at $69,995!)
Now, for obvious reasons, that's not the safest of situations. And in order to fix the situation, traffic in that area was closed off, temporarily, according to the Brewer Fire Department:
"Wilson Street was temporarily shut down while Union Street Towing could safely lift the (Very Expensive) truck back onto the trailer so it could be unloaded temporarily. Fortunately no one was injured during this incident."
In what they called a "vehicle loading gone wrong", the post also mentioned that the center lane is not the best spot to load or unload vehicles. So, it would stand to reason that this vehicle ended up in this predicament either being moved on or off this trailer.
Whatever the issue was (again, just thinking about performing maneuvers like that with junk cars, let alone brand new vehicles that cost a quarter of what my house is worth, gives me the sweats, so I am not passing judgement here) I am just glad the situation was taken care of without injury to either the people involved, or the property involved.
