Flooding Conditions Dislodge Boulder That Smashed Into Bitterroot Anglers Truck [PICS]
By Toby Trigger
Heavy rains and warm temperatures caused more than un-fishable waters along the Salmon River in Idaho yesterday.
Mud and rock slides along Highway 93 dislodged a boulder that rolled into the Dodge 1500 truck that Toby Trigger and his fishing partner Harry Smash were in as they drove along at 50 miles per hour.
The boulder rolled into the roadway from the passenger side of the truck. Harry swerved to miss it but it connected with the bumper luckily deflecting out and away from the truck and not up into the windshield.
Harry Smash has a reputation for smashing things but for once this one was not his fault. Harry still claims that a bad day of fishing still beats a good day at work, especially when you live to tell about it.
Spring flooding can cause all sorts of hazards, keep an eye out and be safe while on the rivers and while travelling to and from them!
