This morning I received a call from a neighbor that a truck had been swept away in our rain-swollen creek. We have been trying to prevent trespassing and keep dirtbikers off our properties and road, so I've been elected to be the neighborhood photographer and make a record everyone caught trespassing for the law authorities. Here is what I found, early this morning: Since we could not see inside the water-filled cab, we called 911 to alert for a possible drowning victim. Within a half-hour we had nearly ten law vehicles from fire rescue, sheriff, tow trucks and water rescue. Soon the CHP helicopter arrived to search downstream for bodies: After nearly two hours a diving team arrived and opened up the truck's doors. Out swept trash, soccer cleats and other unidentifiable debris, but thankfully, no drowning victims! Before leaving the scene, as I was getting very cold and my feet were wet, I took one last image of a blue hat floating and swirling around in the open door of the vehicle. I can only imagine the trouble someone is going to be in for losing this truck, the cost of the rescue efforts and the trespass charges to be brought on the hapless driver. The moral of this story? Don't go where you are not supposed to go, and don't try to ford storm swollen creeks after torrential downpours. An expensive mistake.
