Vulcan County: Several counties around Southern Alberta have warned about the possibility of
rural road wash-outs, and the reality hit hard for one driver Friday morning.
Fortunately, he wasn't injured.
About 8:05, the driver was on Township Road 160, a quarter mile west of Range
Road 254 south of Vulcan when he hit a sink hole that spanned the entire width
of the road.
The road cracked open about three-feet over top of a culvert and wasn't
visible to the driver. When the truck hit the hole, it opened up further as
the sides caved in.
RCMP warn you to be wary on rural roads right now. The ground is saturated
and as snow continues to melt it will impact gravel roads. Even if the road
appears to be drivable, it's advised that you not travel too close to road
shoulders as they are very soft and may give way.
