When temperatures are way below zero, when you’re driving in a whiteout, when the interstate is covered in black ice things can go wrong. When they do, they can go very wrong very quickly.

That’s why there are guys like Jamie Davis and his heavy rescue company. Based in British Columbia, Canada, Davis and his team specialize in untangling big rig wrecks along the mountainous Coquihalla Highway.

Here’s the good part: their work is the subject of a cable TV program now airing on the Weather Channel called Highway Thru Hell. It airs Sundays at 10 p.m. Check local listings. Season 4 premiered last Sunday.

Truckers News will follow the series as Season 4 unfolds and live Tweet and post to our Facebook page throughout each program. We also expect to have features on the men and machines of Highway Thru Hell.

See what it’s all about.
