Jim Gill/For the Appeal Clarence Jennings' International Scout is shown above the Loring pit on Thursday. Jennings drove the car to the top of the pit Wednesday and couldn't get it down. Deputies put the car in gear Thursday and let it roll 500 feet into the pit. The Storey County Sheriff's Office said the only safe way to remove the vehicle was to let it roll into the pit.
