Professional performance driver Arnold Korbmacher, of Bellingham, Washington, plows a 58,000-pound sand truck into the runaway truck arrestor on Teton Pass at 60 mph to test the system on July 13, 2021. The catchnet system was re-engineered after it failed to stop a pickup hauling a load of logs almost two years ago, and WYDOT and the manufacturer wanted to confirm it would stop future runaway trucks.
