A Safe Reportedly Found in Roadway This Morning
At first glance, the notation on the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page seemed to indicate just another traffic hazard at mile marker 9 on Hwy 36 reported at 8:09 a.m. However, after deciphering the shorthand known to dispatchers, the single line read, “Per Calfire…there is a safe in the roadway here.”
What a mysterious beginning to a mystery novel this would be! On a remote rural highway, a safe is found in the middle of the road in a wooded area. Allow the intriguing possibilities of the contents to expand your imagination.
Most likely, there are no contents, of course. But take a moment on this Wednesday and wonder with us what might be the story behind this safe.
Caltrans has been requested to respond. We’ll try to find out what the story is.
