Chevy Rescues Ford Pickup in Deep Water, Grayland, Washington
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.
BIG BAD FORDS
Ford trucks that are great. They will beat any chevy or dodge.
Remember FORD= FIRST ON RACE DAY
Don't forget the tie downs
Fairly common error on a boat ramp when people don't get ready in the parking lot before trying to launch. But I've never had anyone actually do it in front of me when I'm standing in full view with a video camera recording them! Get a hint guys -- take a class!
