COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — A truck driver trying to deliver a load of Oregon sand to a northern Idaho golf course’s sand traps drove into a trap himself when his GPS sent him down a narrow route through the forest. Beauty Creek Road got ugly for Demetrio Rayo of Ontario, Oregon, on Wednesday when his tractor-trailer partially rolled off the single-lane U.S. Forest Service road that is washed out in places. Rayo tells the Coeur d’Alene Press that his GPS told him that was the way to Gozzer Ranch, but he started having doubts when he encountered no traffic and no place to turn around. He made it six miles before the trailer rolled. The truck remained upright but twisted. Rayo says it’s totaled. Authorities say no sand spilled into the creek.
