Mystery Solved

Two weeks ago, a Mystery Photo was posted on this blog. When, Where, How?

On August 10, 2005, a trailer truck owned by R&R Trucking, Inc., hauling 35,500 pounds of explosives rolled and exploded between the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon and the intersection of Highway 89, creating a large crater 70 feet wide and 30 feet deep. The incident sent 20 people to the hospital.

The driver was on his way from Ensign-Bickford Company in Spanish Fork to Oklahoma when the truck tipped on its right side and was torn open. Three minutes after the wreck, the explosives blew. The driver was going too fast. The road reopened two days later–way to go UDOT. (info obtained from The Tribune)
