Curious where you got this info? Unless this is a different wreck in the same general area...I think your facts are a little skewed, but I could be wrong.

There was another accident in the area. It was just on the east side of the continental divide and not on Radical Hill. More specifically, it was just over the divide from the top of the middle fork of the Swan River. I saw the wreckage Saturday while mountain biking.

Ken- that hill is referred to as Swandyke.

Correct. I climbed up past Swandyke, and at the top (T-intersection) a right turn climbs up to the divide. An off-road book says it's an overlook, but there were switchbacks on the other side. Here is a link to a pic I took. Note the debris (coolers, etc) after each of the first rolls. Not seen is the roof rack that apparently came off after the first roll.

There was also an ATV accident up there on Saturday. Some friends of mine were doing trail maintenance near Radical Hill and they witnessed an ATV rolling down a hill. They were also quick to help the party involved. I'm not sure of the outcome of the injured, though.

I was just there on Swandyke yesterday. I actually hiked down to make sure no one was in the jeep. Everything looked so fresh (coolers/mayo/mustard) etc...So what happened here? They really need to put up a sign as I'm sure they drove down the switchbacks only to find out it was a deadend.
