Emergency crews pull off miraculous rescue in 1955: Earl Dobbs, a then-40-year-old truck driver from Los Angeles probably should have died one spring morning in 1955 when the big rig he was driving -- and the 22 tons of tin plate it was carrying -- overturned on a sharp curve between Oakley and Bridgehead. But rescue crews mobilized quickly and were able to rise to the occasion -- they brought in two cranes and another two hydraulic jacks, and took the load off Dobbs's back, piece by piece. Comment?
