Mizhhirya rescuers towed a truck

January 24th, at 16:40, the rescue service of Transcarpathia was reported that near the Synevyr pass in Mizhhirya district, a truck "DAFF" needed towing.

The vehicle loaded with 22 tons of bricks was going from the village of Kolochava. The driver ignored a poster with the information that during ice and snowstorms the traffic of large transport on this stretch of the highway is prohibited. The driver could not overcome the pass and had been standing on the roadside for three days waiting for weather conditions to improve.

Crews of the 4th State Fire and Rescue Units were sent to tow the truck. The rescuers helped the vehicle to turn around and drive down the mountain road. Then, the truck continued to drive independently.
