The driver of the Subaru was racing his car on Forest Service Roads outside of Blackhawk/Alice. He turned down a steep section of road and the trail became much more difficult. The first picture in the video shows what he went down. A few hundred feet up the trail he had hit a rock with his oil pan and punctured it. He then went around a rocky section via bypass and nose dived into a rock (visible in the fourth picture, middle left). At that point he abandoned his vehicle. Over the next 2-3 weeks his stereo and racing seats were stolen.

Members of Colorado4x4.org and CTP (Colorado Trail Patrol) caught wind of this idiots actions and captured evidence of his actions, reported it to the local ranger district & sheriff, and recovered the vehicle.

It was recovered downward instead of upward because the exit (going down) was only 1-2 miles long, as opposed to the ~12 miles on the drive in.

The spilled oil was cleaned up, trash/car debris removed, and the illegal bypasses blocked off.
