The Coquihalla is one of the most treacherous major highways in the world. Rising through the steep mountains passes in British Columbia, it is a gauntlet of brutal weather and white knuckle driving. The "Coq" is also the main artery between east and west, with thousands of semis crossing every day. Many don't make it. Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue has the daunting job of clearing these wrecks to keep the highway open. Closure in not an option. For Jamie and his colorful crew, winter season is a non-stop onslaught of tangled semis and blistering weather that would push any man to the breaking point.
An oversized load tests Jamie and his rebuilt wrecker HR-126; a gravel hauler ricochets off a rock wall leaving a twisted mess for Kelly and John; swamper Gord Lundin gets a chance to operate his own tow truck.
Jamie and his fleet of heavy wreckers are paralyzed in his own yard by a massive snowfall; a tow-up in deep powder turns into big trouble for Colin; Al and Gord rescue a teetering semi during the morning rush on Hwy 1.
Jamie's 13-year-old son gets a lesson in wreck recovery after a semi crashes down a 150-foot embankment; rock slides north of Hope trigger road closures and an explosive clean-up; Dylan puts on his hip waders to fish a truck out of a lake.
Jamie takes The Python off road for the first time; Jamie's brother Kelly battles high winds and a power pole to save a semi loaded with pipes; Gord Boyd picks up a new heavy wrecker for Quiring Towing.
A missing truck driver trapped inside a wreck for two days draws Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue and first responders into one of the most difficult and emotional recoveries in years.
One of the worst winter storms in years forces officials to shut down The Coq; working through blinding snow, freezing rain and even an avalanche threat, heavy rescue crews help truckers and drivers out of the closure zone.
Jamie Davis travels across North America to explore the roots of heavy rescue, from the first tow truck, to the latest modern machines; his classic restoration, the Mighty Mo, finally comes to life.
