In Ouray, emergency crews staged a major crash complete with a mock triage and fake victims complaining of various injuries. Exercises such as this one are meant to ensure that emergency crews are well prepared for real life accidents.

Since 2005 five cars, pick-up trucks and minivans have gone over the side of the cliff where the training took place.

Officials say the training operation was a success and they feel confident they would be able to handle a real crash
