      I saw it that day when it was about to go up the hill...The truck has the power to get up, Im sure its a CAT engine in those big GMC...It clearly said it was reversing when it went into the hole...maybe the driver didn't or couldn't see the hole. I hate driving up there around the corners and having to be careful of going down into one of them

    What more there is to learn!? The truck was backing down the hill when one of the wheels went down in a culvert. Any vehicle go down in those could never drive out. Common sense make it worst look at the position the truck is in and not even 1 block dropped off and still negavity! Instead of thanking jah causing it not to be worst ppl busy talking fart like chickens running around without heads!

    If he could drive why he backing down the hill. He would be in the proper select and keep going. We all know that you don't play with loads on a hill but everybody play dem driving truck but learning in the process. It takes a skilled truckman to pull a stunt like that WITH confidence. Does he even have the appropriate licence. Just thought I'd ask. They all don't but if TOP COP pull them over and point that discrepancy out to them they vex and call it HARASSMENT. Jah guidance and respect that it turned out safe though.

      Some of you people only come on news to talk i just thought i'd ask....its called reversing- how do you know where and to whom the person was delivering the blocks. The darn roads are messed up all over..
      Who ever the driver was, good job- you didn't hurt yourself nor anyone and completed your delivery just fine.
