Last night, around the dinner hour, Aaron calls and says he's down at Wyatt's corner, that there has been an accident with a semi truck. That is a sharp corner, a couple miles down the road from us- this is all the farms land. Anyhow I hop in the car, with 4 boys of course to check on things....and then went back for my camera!
First off I'd like to report, that amazingly enough the man lived through this accident, crawled out of the cab by himself. We know he had a broken leg, & was taken off in an ambulance....Aaron saw him. I am not sure what really happened, but I think he might have been not paying attention, like distracted with a map- and all of a sudden the corner was there. He had loaded up the bailing twine boxes in a near by town, and was headed to California. The twine boxes were on pallets, loaded on the flat bed.
I like this photo because it shows the BIG tow truck that came out to deal with the problem. Anyhow things didn't work from this direction, a cable either slipped or broke and went flying, thankfully not hitting anyone. They ended up closing down the road for a while, and had the tow truck across the road in the field, dealing with a better angle.
