Disaster I

  On May 20, 2002, a day that will live in infamy, a semi truck passed too close to my rig and this is what happened. The truck roared on as I crashed, but I had only 2 small cuts. My son and stepson helped recover what we could from the wreckage.

Hiway 8 West of Gila Bend

The scene is 30 miles West of Gila Bend Arizona. Highway 8 is totally blocked until some trucks circled the wreck by pulling onto the median.

It Still Runs

Missing a windshield and with jammed doors, it still ran well enough to pull away.
