A new video gives you a closer look at how a semi truck got stuck on the scenic Moki Dugway cliff road near Mexican Hat, Utah.
The video was created by photographer and tour guide Taylor Cramer, who encountered the semi truck after it became stuck on the Moki Dugway Scenic Backway, which carries Highway 261 in San Juan County, Utah, on October 11.
“The wrecker (that’s what those BIG tow trucks are called) reversed up the road to where the truck was and lifted its back end back onto the road. There are still two more switchbacks up the road from where the truck was stuck, but that was an easier exit than going back down. The tow truck helped scoot the truck’s butt around the switchbacks the same way it lifted it back onto the road, shimmying around the corners,” Cramer said. “Some suspect that this truck was trying to avoid Point of Entry inspections coming from Arizona into Utah, perhaps smuggling something up north, or maybe they just wanted to take the scenic route.”
