Toledo Police say a man driving an extended cab pick up headed south on East Slope or East on 10th was driving too fast for conditions and left the road, sliding toward the slough at East Slope and 10th. He narrowly missed a line of large river rock that marks the boundary of the river park. Fortunately the pickup was stopped by a guard rail, but just barely. The right set of wheels managed to get on the slough side of the guard rail, but the left set smacked up against it and stopped the vehicle.
A Toledo Police officer on scene said the driver appeared to be drunk. There were no injuries except for the damage to the pickup and to the guard rail which did its job. Again, it prevented the vehicle from rolling over into the deep mud of the slough and producing serious injury or even loss of life.
