GPS technology has come a long way, but it can still get you in trouble too. Just ask this Colorado truck driver...
GPS is useful tool for navigation, but it shouldn’t be followed blindly.
That appears to be what happened Friday when a 30-foot box truck became stuck near the top of a rugged mountain road north of Silverton known as Engineer Pass. And it doesn’t appear the truck is going anywhere anytime soon.
Engineer Pass is known as one of the most difficult and steep backcountry roads in the area, reaching a peak elevation of 12,800 feet, which requires a four-wheel drive and high-clearance vehicle.
It appears the truck left Silverton on Friday and was near the top of Engineer Pass, which would have the truck headed toward Lake City, when the driver tried to turn around and became stuck.
