A reader submitted these photos as a reminder to always be prepared for everything while out on the road. These pictures were taken near Terrace, B.C. The driver apparently rounded a corner in the highway and was greeted with a large fallen boulder in his path.
Fortunately, he wasn’t driving too fast and wasn’t seriously injured. The truck was a write-off, however, as you can clearly see from the pictures.
“They had to drill three holes in the rock/boulder to break it up enough for them to be able to move it,” the reader said in his e-mail.
Serves as a good reminder to always expect the unexpected out there.
