SP: Dispatch we have an acid truck dangling from the Hurley bridge.
Dispatch: Do you need the Hurley Fire Department?
SP: Negative, it's just the cab but send some backup for traffic control.

Not dangling from the bridge, missed the bridge between 3:00 3:30 this afternoon, Wednesday, see the last photo below. This was a near disaster as this acid was headed to Highway 180 just below.

Image
G&G's large black wrecker barely got the tanker a little way and no more even though the driver was in the cab revving the engine in reverse.

Image
G&G's baby white wrecker arrived as did a mobile crane just in case. The 2 wreckers and the semi straining in reverse got the job done by 5:10 pm.

Image
I'm not even going to guess what scenario led to this. Judging by the long line of mine trucks backed up at the other end of the bridge this is well used by the mine.
