Highway Thru Hell focuses on a team of drivers who work for Jamie Davis, along with several other heavy recovery operations fighting to keep the roads open in some of the most dangerous working conditions ever seen on TV. The Coquihalla and nearby highways through BC's Cascade Mountains have some of the most difficult and fast changing road conditions anywhere. When it's snowing hard up top on the summit of ‘The Coq', 1200 metres below its pounding rain in The Fraser Valley. Add to that, Canada's busiest trucking route to the West Coast, Highway 1 (Trans Canada Hwy), and you have the ‘Bermuda Triangle' of trucking. Police and highway maintenance crews depend on Highway Thru Hell's heavy rescue operators to respond at a moment's notice in the worst conditions. In between the winter storms, the teams ‘off road' skills are put to the test. The rugged terrain near Hope, British Columbia dishes out some of the most unique and challenging recovery jobs over steep cliffs, down deep ravines and even in bodies of water. Highway Thru Hell is ultimately a series about man versus Mother Nature and the toughest men in the towing business being pushed to their breaking point. The stakes are high - lives, the economy and thousands of jobs depend on the highways staying open, and the last line of defense is Heavy Rescue.
Winter is back in full force on the Coquihalla Highway and Jamie Davis has bulked up with his biggest heavy rescue crew ever. The first big wreck of the season brings the crew out to a crashed truck with a double load of lumber that Jamie needs to recover without damaging its fragile roof. As the job drags on into the night the road freezes over leaving the team to juggle passing traffic and an awkward recovery.
Winter hits fast and furious, testing the endurance of the heavy rescue crew. Jamie's got to keep a wrecked load of wood chips from busting open all over the highway. Ken strikes out when he tries to recruit Brandon into car towing. Later, a fully loaded Sea-Can container flips, blocking Highway 3. The heaviest lift in two seasons pushes Jamie and the Rotator to their outer limit.
Jamie brings back veteran driver Scott by promising him a new state of the art heavy wrecker. But the new truck is months behind schedule, so Scott has to settle for a worn-out vintage truck. A grueling schedule pushes Adam to his breaking point and he goes AWOL, while Jamie is forced to abandon his Rotator on a backcountry road that is too dangerous to drive.
Tension between Jamie and Adam boil over as they struggle to flip a B-train on a narrow icy road. Adam comes close to quitting, but then backs off when Jamie makes him a promise. A two-car collision closes the snow shed and puts Ken's towing know-how to the test. A truckload of Christmas mail nearly goes off a cliff.
A trailer filled with costly pharmaceuticals gets embedded in a block of ice. A truckload of frozen chickens crashes into a tangle of trees. 65-year-old Bruce begins to show signs that he may be over the hill. Rob's promotion to lead flagger is short-lived when police revoke his license for speeding.
A local competitor challenges Jamie's status on the Hill. A trailer full of cat food bursts into flames - and Scott and Gord have to battle for two days to get the burning heap off the Smasher. Bruce gets into a fight that lands him in the hospital.
The biggest storm of the season is about to hit the Coq with a fury, just as Jamie discovers that his license has expired. His day gets even worse when someone smashes the Rotator. When Jamie then gets a call for a dream job it turns into the most challenging recovery of the season.
A semi hits a barrier so hard that it tears off the trailer's rear axle, blocking the Coq's most important exit. Scott tells Jamie he's fed up with the vintage truck he's been driving, and a mysterious new driver shows up in the yard to start work.
Heavy rescue has to recover a severely damaged trailer loaded with millions of plastic beads. Spring rains are causing rock slides on Highway 1. When a B-train loaded with lumber drives off a cliff in order to avoid a boulder, Jamie's called in to recover the wreck before it falls down onto an active railroad line.
Jamie and crew wrestle to recover a trailer loaded with apples off a dangerous bridge. A multi-vehicle wreck turns deadly for a Good Samaritan. Scott returns after two weeks of forced vacation, hoping to finally get his new heavy rescue truck.
Adam and Jamie are forced to use some fancy rigging to try to save a wreck on Highway 1 that threatens to spill its load all over the road. When a new competitor rolls onto the mountain and cuts the work in half Jamie is forced to realize he can't afford to keep his world class fleet of trucks on the Coq.
Producer and Host Mark Miller joins the crew of Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue for "Beer O'Clock" for a pre-game build up to the season finale. Jamie, Adam, Scott, Ken, Bruce, Kevin and the rest of the guys share beers and trade stories about season 2 on the Coq. Find out which wrecks made it to the Top Five List as they reveal the hairiest behind-the-scenes moments from the most challenging, gnarliest, most grueling recoveries of the winter. Discover some of the surprising impacts being on TV has had on them - and on the Coq. No subject is off the table as the crew turns the focus on each other and share their personal struggles. How did "Comeback Kid" Scott rate on his return to heavy rescue after a decade out of the game? Were his frustrations with the vintage Five Star General legit? What happened with Ken's big ambition to kick Jamie's car towing business into high gear? Why did 65-year-old Bruce have such a tough time handing over the keys to his Holmes wrecker and switching to a lighter truck? How did rookie Gord do on his first winter on the Coq? And what's the deal with Chris? Never towed a car? No license to drive a heavy wrecker? As we build up to the premiere of the final episode, the crew looks at their own future. Is the competition and rotation driving Jamie off the Coq? Will the guys be back to keep the highway open next winter? Stay tuned.
A new competitor on the Coq has cut Jamie's business in half, and the one job he lands in weeks ends up being a complex recovery that no one seems willing to pay for. Heavy rescue faces a life and death decision - shut down or leave the Coq for the oil rush boomtown of Fort McMurray and some steady cash. Determined that "closure is not an option" for Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue, the crew packs up and heads north in search of the new highway thru hell.
