GPS nightmare

You just can't depend on a GPS to get you where you need to be as this truck driver from North Carolina found out on Monday, Feb. 25. At around 5 a.m. the trailer took out part of the Dobbyn Creek Bridge located between Alderpoint and Blocksburg. His GPS diverted him northeast off of Hwy. 101 and onto the narrow rural roads. He managed to get out of the tractor as it teetered on the edge of the cliff. Humboldt County Road maintenance supervisor Marty Messenger said he is working on posting signs prohibiting large truck traffic on these roads to prevent occurrences like this one, which have been happening more often lately.
