S. Broadway Truck Stuck Under Awning
Posted On: Sep 22, 2020

At 2:24 p.m. on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, Local members responded to 7720 S. Broadway in Littleton after a delivery truck became stuck under the building awning. Members stabilized the structure, used a grinder to cut away damaged metal on top of the trailer and the tires were deflated to lower the trailer height. Those actions were enough to back the trailer out from under the first beam, but not enough to clear the building sign which is several inches lower. To add weight, a portable water tank (normally used for rural firefighting operations) was placed in the trailer and filled with water. Approximately 750 gallons or about 6,200 pounds of water weight, was enough to lower the trailer so that it could be safely removed. No one was injured and there was only cosmetic damage to the awning.
