The co­qui­halla is one of the most treach­er­ous high­ways in the world. Ris­ing through the steep moun­tain 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 of the Coq is not an op­tion. For Jamie and his crew, win­ter is a non-stop on­slaught of tan­gled semis, blis­ter­ing weather and stress­ful con­di­tions that would push any man to break­ing point.
