Highway Thru Hell S5

Highway Thru Hell: Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue has patrolled the steep mountain passes of British Columbia’s Coquihalla for the past decade, one of the most treacherous major highways in the world.

Thousands of trucks travel this gauntlet of brutal weather every day, and many don’t make it.

It is up to Heavy Rescue to clear the wrecks and reopen the road fast. Now Jamie is taking on the only road that could be even worse, northern Alberta’s 881. Massive industrial loads head up this narrow stretch of icy highway, through remote forest, to the booming oil patch.

Jamie’s colourful crews battle the non-stop onslaught of tangled trucks and trailers and blistering weather that would push anyone to breaking point.

Who thought the Highway Thru Hell would be paved with so much ice?
