Amid riots, Pitt Ohio assists Summers Trucking

Saturday night in Pittsburgh, amid riots and protests like those going on around the nation, a driver from member company Summers Trucking found himself in a very difficult situation.

He was stuck. Trapped in the road by protesters who were jumping on his tractor and flatbed trailer. The police on scene were unable to help because rioters had just set a police vehicle on fire near the truck.

But the driver remained calm until he could safely leave and Summers Trucking routed him to a secure lot at fellow member Pitt Ohio.

“Had it not been for our association with Pitt Ohio through PMTA, we would not have found a safe haven for our driver and our equipment,” said Becky Summers. “In my opinion, the networking is one of the more valuable tools PMTA has to offer.”

A big thank you to Dean Yockey of Pitt Ohio and the rest of their staff who assisted in this desperate situation.
