Jeep Turns into Submarine Trying to Cross River
Occurred on June 29, 2019 / Slickrock, Colorado, USA Info from Licensor: "A group of Jeepers arrived on the opposite bank of the river from Tree Frog Canyon.
The jeep first crossed the river while attached to a winch of another Jeep still on the bank.
This created a dangerous situation as the winch line was still in the water when another group came down the river on inflatable kayaks.
The kayak group was able to pull out above the winch line and wait for the jeepers to disconnect it.
The jeep driver tried to drive back across the river without being attached to the winch.
He made it about half way across and started to loose traction and was swept downstream.
The driver was able to climb out of the window and sat on top until it finally came to a rest about 100 yards downstream.
Once the jeep came to a rest, the kayakers who had stopped decided to go downstream to assist as they could.
After some deliberation they decided the jeep was not going to be retrieved and the kayakers helped to get the jeep driver safely to shore.
The jeep remained in the river overnight, and was still there when we packed up and went downstream on Sunday morning."
