[9:17 p.m.] Topsy Turvey Toyota Blocks Briceland Road
At approximately 7 p.m. a Toyota pickup flopped upside down in the middle of the Briceland Road
near Shop Road about 1/2 mile east of Whitehorn junction on Shelter Cove Road. According to the California Highway Patrol Incident page, one way traffic control appears to still be in effect as of 9:10 p.m.
Kim Cabrera, a local tracker was one of the first on scene. She took photos and described the what happened. “We could not find the driver,” she said. “We even searched the brush on the side of the road in case they got ejected from the vehicle, but we found no one. Hard to believe someone walked away from this. It was crushed!”
Cabrera said that a passerby called 911 and then a volunteer firefighter and BLM ranger were the first responders to arrive. The California Highway Patrol and Cal Fire arrived on scene as she was leaving.
“This was interesting from a tracking perspective,” Cabrera said. “I’ve never had the opportunity to examine an accident scene and read the tracks there. It looked like one of the front tires went into the ditch and got stuck. Momentum carried the truck forward until it spun sideways, then flipped upside down. Must have been going really fast to do that.”
