sucks to be him, sorry to hear it.
I came out as the second team on the one called the "bean field wreck". the guy went 200 yards offroad with a load of baskets full of brake rotors. he hit the only tree in 1000' in either direction. the problems started when the fire crew couldn't get to the truck because of the 24" of mud in the wet bean field. the troops called KBK & they called us. we had a brand new `82 GMC 4X4 wrecker and my pal Steve rolled on it. he was there in no time and got close enough to pull the cab off the tree(it was a cab over and it wrapped around the tree), he ripped the door off and the fire team got inside and pulled the dececed driver out. they put him in a litter and set him on the truck, they brought him out to the side of the highway and set him down while our two wrecker services worked to get the bins and the truck out of the field. we were there about 5 hours when the coraner showed up to collect the guy. seemed like it was cutting into his nap time.
