2010-01-14 Collision with Gate

Date of Incident / Close Call: 
2010-01-14
Company Name: 
TimberWest
Details of Incident / Close Call: 

Many of us are driving through gates on a daily basis, including at times when light is poor, or other factors impede visibility.

This guy caught what looks like a partially open gate that may have been tough to see through brush and windy roads, and the visibility of the gate wasn't that great.

Please look at all four pictures to see how lucky this guy really was.

Learnings and Suggestions: 

Very important to always keep our minds (and certainly eyes) on task at all times, and anticipate potential hazards in advance.  Also, think about what state you leave a gate in and what it could do to the next driver coming along.
