    I went out yesterday to plow and saw this just down the street from my house. This truck was completely on its side at first. he had a buddy try to pull it out first then he waited 12 hours in 0 degree temps to have a wrecker come and try to pull it out. Probably was drunk and needed to sober up. I knew the wrecker driver he told me the guy told him it was only that way for 3 hours and it was almost 12 hours later. Needless to say it is frozen in about two feet of ice now. It will be there for awhile........

    I bet his buddy had a little 1/4 ton or something! lol. Wonder how many tickets the police will slap on there?? Driving to fast for conditions, parking in a right of way, and leaving a vehicle unnattended for more than 48 hrs.... It's going to be expensive to get that thing out.

    It's been over 24 hours now and no tickets yet that I see???? No police have been involved either that I know of???? His buddy bent the bumper. The wrecker company had two big rollbacks on it and all they were doing was twisting up the frame. They walled away after they relalized he lied about how long it had been in the water in the ditch.

    they need a crane to get that thing out. The axles are resting right ont he ground, if the pull it they could demo them pretty good

    I don't think he would get any tickets here either, I am sure police understand that the truck is frozen solid in there. They can't honsetly expect someone to stay by the car until they can get it out. He isn't blocking the road that much, not anymore than snow built up along other roadways.

    I'm fairly certain that you could extract that with a single wrecker. It would of course be nice to have two, but there is definitely no need for a HD to be called out just for that.

    It'd still be payup though....

    i'm pretty sure i could get that thing out with my flatbed. a snatch block and some creative thinking. it needs to be pulled out from a lower point than where it is sitting. now that it is frozen in there though i feel bad for the poor guy cuz that probably wont be out for quite some time

    It is on the county side of a city road. So both City and County plow the road. The owner was down there a little bit ago with some watersoftner pellets.LOL Oh and the buddy with his 1/2 ton chevy.

    Now would he be a "Legitimate plower" Or a "Plow for beer money plower" Or "Just someone that rides around with a plow on plower"? Just curious.
