I spotted the vehicle in the river from the hwy corner a few hundred yards downstream and so we stopped. The accident must have just happened, we got another motorist to drive on and call for help then put on PFDs and scrambled down to see if there was anything we could do. Amazingly the little Girl and her Mom were nearly uninjured and justifyably freaked out by being in the river with water up to the seats of the SUV. We were able to pass them out the door and help them to the bank, up the steep 40 feet river bank they had rolled down and a group of KW construction guys got them up the last bit and started getting them both dry and warm in their vehicle. No big deal at all, we felt good at being able to help and have some PFDs and a couple of ropes to keep things safe for us. This vehicle had ran right into the end of a section of guard rail and sheared off the first five rail posts before rolling down a steep 40 feet and landing on its wheels only 5 or 6 feet from the bank. I thought it would be a great oppurtunity for all of us in the River community to remember that driving to the river and running shuttle is also a part of our lives when we need to play heads up and to focus on what we are doing!!!!
you and your friend, sir, are true badasses. big time man points! nice work!
