Water truck tumbles down embankment

North State Briefs: May 26, 2007 :

"LAKE SHASTA -- The driver of a water tender assigned to help fight the Bolli Fire went down an approximately 200-foot embankment Friday, and reportedly suffered minor injuries, said a spokesman for the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.

The water tender did not roll into Lake Shasta as had been feared, he said.

Forest Service spokesman Mike Odle said the contracted driver, who worked for Alan's Water of Cottonwood, went off a Forest Service road north of Whitegate and rolled about 200 feet before stopping. The driver was going to be taken to a Redding hospital for observation."
