The heavy recovery team recently responded to a call from the Orlando Police Department about a car transporter that needed assistance on the East-West Expressway and Interstate 4. Apparently, the pickup truck had lost control while going through a S-curve on the highway. 

The loss of control resulted in the vehicle going off the roadway. Used to being the police department’s go-to wrecker service, the Johnson’s team promptly responded to the call and arrived at the scene. 

Using a 50-ton rotator, 75-ton rotator, and 3 flatbeds, the crew of 4 on the scene assessed the situation. The pickup truck and car transporter were holding cars that had been bought at an auction. In order not to cause too much disruption on the highway, the vehicles needed to be quickly evacuated.

Using the rotators, the heavy recovery team successfully pulled the vehicles back up onto the roadway and loaded all the vehicles on flatbeds. The crew worked quickly on the highway, displaying their years of expertise and reliability. 

In less than 90 minutes, the Johnson’s Wrecker Service crew efficiently got the vehicles safely off the road and traffic started flowing smoothly. Congratulations to the amazing team for completing another successful heavy towing job!
