An RV was pulled out of the North Fork of the Shoshone river Sunday night after its brakes failed on Sylvan Pass in Yellowstone National Park.
An article in the Cody Enterprise reports that the driver of the 35-foot RV was the father of a family who was moving across the country. The brakes on the vehicle failed on Sylvan Pass at about 7 p.m., and although the man shifted down and used the e-brake, the RV was still going between 25 and 30 miles per hour when it went into the river. The driver was able to get out of the vehicle through the passenger door, according to the newspaper.
Eagle Recovery of Cody was able to pull the vehicle out of the river with minimal damage to either the RV or the river, as no fuel was spilled and none of the contents of the vehicle were thrown during the crash.
