A trapper was travelling in his pick-up through a narrow section on the Moberly FSR, a location that had some blind spots, when he had a low-speed head on collision with a loaded logging truck (see attached pdf for photo).
The trapper did not have a two-way radio and was cresting a hill at the same time as the oncoming heavy truck.
• Trappers and all other private vehicles using resource roads should have and utilize two-way radios
• Install better signage for blind spots
