Skid marks show where Christine Murray, 23, of Meeker, swerved to miss a deer, lost control of her vehicle, and landed in the White River between Pearce’s and Rogers’ bridges on RBC Road 8. According to RBC deputy Paula Dent, at approximately 9 a.m. on June 25, good Samaritan Albert Avey encountered a wet and barefoot Murray, who had gotten out of her vehicle and climbed out of the river at Rogers’ bridge. Deputy Dent said Murray was treated and released from Pioneers Medical Center and was not issued a citation. Murray’s car has since floated under two bridges and was hung up below the Green Cabins, where this picture was taken. “She was lucky,” Dent said.
