Accidents, Rollovers & Recoveries from the Eighties Video 2
PLEASE READ: This is a further collection of Recovery Jobs that I did in the late eighties. It gives you a chance to see some of the great characters that were in the industry back in the days before it went all Health and Safety. Plus of course a number of Policemen so comfortable with what they were doing, that they allow their sense of humour to show through. The Stripper was for one of our HGV drivers who was always playing tricks on people and his wife knew that if she set him up at home, he would see right through it, So we did it at work using a real Police Officer the driver knew, to introduce the lady as his new navigator. I know some of the technics look appalling now, but we knew what we were doing and I never 'lost a man on my watch'! If anyone recognises themselves, please take a moment to say hello.You will find several more collections like this on my 'U-Tub' Channel. .

091911 Semi crash kills driver on Russellville Road
The driver of a tractor trailer was killed Monday morning in a single-vehicle crash on Russellville Road (Ky. Highway 79), resulting in the road being closed for several hours. The crash occurred around 10 a.m., in 5000 block as, for an unknown reason, the southbound vehicle exited the right shoulder and traveled several hundred before losing its load of a 60,000-pound aluminum ingot.
