UPS 18 Wheel Truck vs Pylon Sign in Wylie Texas

Recommended Posts

My friend sent this photo to me last night. Looks like the driver tried to drive in between poles of this pylon sign in Wylie Texas. I wonder if the other pole is still standing. 

Just curious of opinions of what would be the proper steps for a professional sign company to take to restore this pylon sign?

Determine if the base shifted and /or the columns bent.   In our case a car veered off the road, hit the embankment at the entrance drive, and went airborne at an undetermined speed...and you can see how far the sign flew from the impact.

Also truck impact. Took the insurance companies 2 years to sort out who would pay. The I beam was direct buried in concrete and bent I beam and pulled concrete up 6"

Fiberglass pin was shattered.

Repaired pin with 2 side cabinets going up next week, foundation pored today.

Proper steps for any capable sign company is #1 thorough on site survey to assess conditions.  Insurance company is going to be involved and they are going to price shop it much as they can get sign companies to quote it.  They are probably going to jack it up some more just getting that rig out!  Top section might be salvageable, tenant section, might be able to save some faces but that depends on how they get the trailer out.  I'm thinking there is a UPS driver filing for unemployment benefits...
