Junk Vehicle Buried
We work in the auto scrap and junk car towing business, which is far from a glamourous activity. When receive calls from those wondering where to scrap my car and often do not know what to expect when we arrive to buy scrap cars. Many of the vehicles heading in for auto scrap are wrecked, totaled, flooded or torched. Our junk car towing operators have likely seen it all from years of going out to buy scrap cars. Our next story comes from California where a buried car was recovered, which had a passenger still inside! The October 20, 2015 edition of dailynews.com had a story titled ‘Body found in vehicle buried in six feet of mud in Palmdale’ which outlined the following tragic news: “A body and a car buried under mud were found at the scene of a flash flood that on a Mojave Desert lane. The LA County Fire Dept. dug up a car buried under six feet of mud that was found in a drainage culvert.
The vehicle was found with a body inside. LA County Sheriff’s say it wasn’t clear whether it was a man or woman in this death investigation. It could be the 1st death related to a storm last week that sent of water slicing through the region of the Tehachapi Mountains. Efforts to find a 67-year-old man swept in the flooding were suspended because wet mud in the area made the search very dangerous. Much of the search area was covered in up to 6 feet deep. The searchers say it is like wading into quicksand.
Officials hoped to resume the search for Richard Harvell, who was hit by mud & water trying to enter his truck. He’d been camping in the flood zone with a friend who was helpless as he washed away. The family is holding out hope that he is alive. Massive flows trapped more many cars, buses, RVs and trucks. Crews hauled away the vehicles but tons of mud still needed removal before traffic could flow again. Dump trucks, bulldozers and such hauled thousands of yards of mud.” To read the full article, visit this link.
This is certainly a tragic story of mother-nature turning a roadway into an auto scrap yard. Junk car towing related vehicles worked around the clock to penetrate the deep, hardened mud. Hopefully these victims had adequate insurance and the vehicles were probably sent to a facility that will buy scrap cars.
