Washington, DC, December 10, 2011 -- The Towing and Recovery Association of America, in conjunction with its ongoing effort to improve the image of towers and the towing industry to the general public, would like to acknowledge the efforts of two towing operators in Portland, OR. A man and a woman suffered life-threatening injuries when the car they were in slammed into a large tree on November 9, 2011, toppling the tree and trapping the occupants inside. The crash happened in the early morning hours on Northeast Portland Highway at 60th Avenue, said Paul Corah, a Portland Fire Bureau spokesman.
The car was traveling eastbound when it struck a hydrant, then continued driving about 100 yards before striking a large tree. The impact knocked down the tree, which was about two-feet in diameter and the car overturned according to Corah. He said extricating the pair required two tow trucks and at least 15 firefighters. He said the tow trucks had to return the car to its wheels so they could free the pinned driver. "Firefighters on the scene said it was one of the hardest extrication jobs they have had in their history with the fire bureau," he said.
