the red truck buried to the roof looked like it could have been a Honda passport/Isuzu amigo.... which means it might have been buried on purpose, an artificial reef is the best use for that vehicle. As far as the trailer on the beach... I've been drunk before, but never THAT drunk
It was about 1:00 PM today 7/17/2010 when a driver and 3 passengers were traveling south on the Grayland beach. About 5 miles south of Westport. It is legal to drive on the uppermost part of the wet sand on the beach in Grayland. They were traveling along the surf line when they drove out onto a sand spit. The driver drove off the sand spit into a deep trench caused by tidal action. The impact was vilant enought to send one passenger to the hospital with a non- life threatining head injury. She was treated by Grayland Fire Department and South Beach EMS then transported to Grays Harbor Community Hospital. The male driver and two other female passengers were uninjured other than being very cold and wet. A very dedicated tow truck operator, Justin Jones with South Beach Towing raced to the scene and quickly got to work. Justin along with the driver of the pickup waded shoulder deep threw the cold salt water, to connect a tow rope to the Ford Diesel Pickup and pulled the rope with a South Beach Towing pickup breaking the strong suction of the soft sand holding the partially submereged vehical in place. Once the suction of the sand was releaved the pickup began to float as water rushed up the hood and icechests floated about the back of the pickup. Justin Jones, the tow truck operator worked hard to get the Ford to dry land however he estimates that the diesel pickup will be a total loss. A Washington State Park Officer stated that the driver will be issued a citation however it was unknown what citation he will be issueing. I do know it is unlawful to drive next to the surf line at low tide do to that being razor clam habitat. UPDATE 7/24/2010. I just found out that the lady transported to the hospital sustained a broken neck. I hope she has a speedy full recovery.
