This was one of our trucks that slid into the hole that opened up in the landslide at the Greentree Landfill in Kersey. All the driver's managed to escape. I was down the road about 1/4 mile. You just never know!
Feeling blessed!!

The worst part of it all is that it could of been prevented. I was there about 1:30pm and overheard a conversation that they knew the slope moved 10-15 foot overnight. I didn't know what I heard actually meant till after I found out this happened. My biggest problem is that they knew the slope was moving but yet kept working the face of the slope. That is pure negligence and reckless endangerment to everyone who was there that day including myself, let alone the workers and all involved. Thoughts are with you all...
