The road was closed earlier in the day. The guy went around barricades and ignored the closed signs. Not an accident in my opinion. Poor little kids!!!

Apparently no load on the vehicle to help keep it firmly grounded.
At least the news didn't mention a thing about it being an ex-military vehicle.
Too bad for the kids that likely loved the adventure that Daddy was doing with them and thought it was invincible as it was an Army truck...

People just underestimate the power of fast moving water flowing through a wash and how quickly a trickle can turn into river.

Local news , feeding from an AZ local news station, described it as a "military style" vehicle.

It wasn't an accident. It was an on purpose. They went around the barricades. AZ has a 'stupid motorist' law that fines people the cost of the rescue when you bypass the barricades. Two of the local tv talking heads describe it as a "military style" vehicle.
