    Default Black Bear Pass - Rubicon rolled under the steps

    Didnt get a full story on what happened but found out it happened Saturday. Looks like they got too close to the edge right under the steps and rolled down a little bit. A larger rock seemed like it stopped them from going over the steeper cliff

    Four passengers lucky to be alive.

    Saw it Tuesday. Figured he climbed the drivers side. Not sure that it was a blind spot, or staircase. Didn't see the jeep till we were past it. I was adjusting my mirror when I saw a jeep following us, but in a weird orientation.

    He didn't look like he was paying attention.

    It only takes a split second for that to happen. A buddy did the same thing in his Samurai while driving in the Rubicon trail 10 years ago. He drove back to Redding, Ca without a windshield or frame. It just proves that you can never be too safe.
