Delivery truck driver learns a hard lesson after taking scenic mountain pass


A delivery truck driver who dared to try a narrow and rocky mountain pass in Colorado ended up in need of a tow.

The incident happened around 2 p.m. on Friday, June 18, in San Miguel County, Colorado.

According to the  San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office, a delivery truck driver attempted to traverse Ophir Pass, a scenic pass through the San Juan Mountains that connects the town of Ophir to Highway 550 near Silverton.

The delivery driver eventually got stuck on the pass, blocking all traffic and requiring tow services to get free.

Crews were able to remove the delivery truck and reopen the pass by 5 p.m.

There’s no word from police on what led the driver to attempt Ophir Pass or whether the driver was ticketed.
