Crash from the past

Kerry and Jeanette Heathman of Chilliwack B.C. were in town last week for the 60th anniversary of Widewater Sports Days. Kerry grew up in Wagner and Jeanette (nee Cuthbert) in Kinuso. Kerry showed us a set of photos his dad Jim Heathman had taken of an incident at the Assineau River Bridge on Hwy. 2 back in the late 1940s. The bridge had collapsed under the weight of a truck carrying a drilling rig. Kerry thinks that’s his dad in the photo, posing in front of the wreckage.
