Truck wreck

Jack Garrett, 34, of Sylva, peers into his Chevrolet truck after it slid down an embankment into Cope Creek behind Kel-Save Discount Drugs. “I guess I just wasn’t paying attention,” he said. “I was reaching for some French fries and nuggets and just slid off the road.” He came around the building and encountered a car and “swung out wide,” he said. Sylva fire and police and Harris EMS responded. Garrett wasn’t injured. “I’m tough as nails,” he said.
