HIGHWAY THRU HELL:
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.
