Big rig stuck, Another tries to help.

In SE Portland near 181st and I-84 truck drivers try their best to make deliveries but once on side roads traction becomes a luxury. In this video the blue truck is stuck in a drift and the red truck tries to help pull him out. The blue truck got stuck around 3pm on the 23rd of December and was still in the same place as of 7:30pm that night. Eventually the blue truck got free since he wasn't there this morning.

I wonder if he had the axle interlock engaged. The rear axle does most of the pulling on a big rig,but the interlock ties both axles together. However, all the power goes to the spinning wheels. You really need to chain-up both axles.

looks like the blue truck has the wrong tires chained up. You can see the front drivers spinning, and the chained tires just sitting there. MAy need to go to winter driving school

Well meaning but stupid.....I think the Denney refer driver will be looking for a new job.....there would have been a more effective way to get the blue truck out but the red truck was just spinning his wheels (pun, get it?)
