Actually now that you mention it, yes some were full yesterday. I know that one on the other side of the river from the rd was full when I drove up that afternoon. LOL

This guys business was transporting trailers with his pickup.... So it definitely ruined his day.

He had some cuts and bruises. A pretty good bleeder on his head. fast food wrappers and piss jugs floating around in the cab. Covered in blood.... A big diesel tank with hoses was a bit upstream of us and leaking. He was stuck in his seat belt upside down struggling to keep his head above water when we got to him.

I held him above water, got his seat belt off and got him out of the vehicle and up to my truck, first aid kit and blankets while the guy I met on the water that day went to get help at the hatchery.

Driver was pretty banged up and disorientated but was able to walk up the bank to my truck before the shock and hypothermia started to kick in. He should be ok.

He definitely needs to look into a new line of work or maybe just stay off mountain roads when pulling trailers.
