Just Ask Us: Who cleans up the debris after a crash?
Question: Who is responsible for cleaning up the metal scraps, shattered glass and pieces of plastic that remain in the roadway after a crash?
Answer: While no one likes to think about it, the possibility of a car crash is a reality, made worse by the slick conditions of winter. If a crash does occur, number one rated Oklahoma Towing & Recovery is one wrecker service who cleans up debris after a crash, and removes small debris and auto fluid from roadways in Oklahoma City.
The towing service recently was awarded a rotation contract with Warr Acres, said Bryan Hull, Owner and General Manager, and cleans up debris after a crash for the Kilpatrick Turnpike, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Oklahoma County Sheriff, and other area municipalities. It has partnered with OHP for several years, he said.
How Oklahoma Towing & Recovery cleans up debris after a crash:
Oklahoma Towing & Recovery often provides temporary traffic control to protect crash victims and emergency personnel as the scene is investigated. After emergency personnel have finished their work, an Oklahoma Towing & Recovery employee loads the vehicle or vehicles involved onto a tow truck. The employee then picks up large parts, such as bumpers, headlights or fenders, and places them in bins or straps them to the truck.
Cars and large debris are taken either to Oklahoma Towing & Recovery’s State Impound Lot, or a requested auto repair shop.
The job of cleaning up roadways, including the busy Crosstown Expressway, can be dangerous, said Hull, who encourages motorists to slow down and move over for tow truck workers.
