Just north of Amarillo, you will find the Canadian River.  Once the weather is warm a lot of people travel to the river to hand out, go off-roading, or mudding.

However, as fun as the Canadian River can be, it can be a dangerous place, especially at night and after large rains.  Many incidents happen near the river all the time.

Unfortunately, another incident occurred on Sunday, May 7th, at 2:20 am.

Potter County Sheriff Deputies received a call and were immediately sent out to the Canadian River, half a mile east of the Dumas Highway, on a single-vehicle crash.  Upon arrival, deputies found a four-passenger off-road vehicle flipped.  One of the persons that had been in the vehicle was pinned underneath.   Twenty-six-year-old,  Santiago Nunez, was pronounced dead at the scene.

As of this time no other information was released.  The Potter County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the accident.

Once summertime approaches, more and more people will be traveling to the Candian River and spending time, and calls to the Potter Country Sheriff's Department will increase.  That is why Potter County Sheriff Deputies who work the Canadian River area go through specialized training, and practice search and recuse scenarios on a regular basis, for these times when help is needed at the river.

For those who do spend time at the Canadian River, please use extra caution to make sure you and those you are with stay safe.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
