In this episode of the River Trip, host Sam Carter talks with Josh Munson and Jessica Mulvihill-Kuntz, boaters who were involved in a boating accident on June 2nd caused by a cable that was strung across the Dolores River. They describe what happened when the cable forced them off of their raft, resulting in serious injuries to two of their fellow boaters. In the second half of the show, Sam talks with Montezuma County Sheriff's Department Deputy John Hancock and Undersheriff Jim Kingery about their investigation into the incident, and what they have learned about why the cable was placed across the river by adjacent landowners.
