This photo shows the river valley in which the 10 ton truck rolled in after it ran off the gravel road. According to the drivers in the other trucks the truck rolled more than a few times around it's length axis until it finally stopped in the river bed. If you look closely you can barely see one set of rear wheels of the truck. Amazingly both drivers survived this with relatively minor injuries. Moments before we heard that something happened on the intercom we (Don, my superior (sergeant) and I) were just telling each other that during our 'tour of duty' nothing really had happened on the many convoys we accompanied as an ambulance team. Well this changed within seconds. I'll never forget what occured that day. This story needs more room and thought, I'll try to make a page for it someday.
