Stolen pickup found impaled on guard rail

A pickup stolen from an Aberdeen, Id., home early Sunday morning was discovered four hours later fully impaled on a guard rail on a canal crossing. A ditch rider working for the Aberdeen Springfield Canal Company was making his inspection rounds with his 7-year-old daughter when he came across the truck hanging off the side of the crossing with the guardrail running through the passenger side of the grille and out the back window of the empty 1999 GMC Sierra. The truck had been stolen from a home about 3 miles away at approximately 2:45 am.
