Sunk!

We were biking along Beach Street which runs along the edge of the Intracoastal Waterway, when, "What's happened up ahead? Look at all those flashing lights!"

Uhoh. Somebody took the curve a little too fast. He was well and truly at sea.

I think the driver was talking on his cell phone, or perhaps text messaging when he took to the water. Certainly not concentrating on his driving, that's for sure. He seemed to be extremely unperturbed about the situation. He even posed for my camera!
When we left, a huge tow truck had arrived, but the vehicle was too far offshore to reach, and they were calling for a mobile crane to lift him out.
Sounds like mega$$$$$$ to me. I hope he had insurance.

RutRoh! He does look unbothered, though. Maybe he's got a lot of extra $?

I hate when that happens!

At least he didn't hit and kill somebody! He's a cutie.

Are you still in Florida or back home? I left Virginia Saturday morning and got home yesterday afternoon. It's good to be home again, even though I miss seeing Ella already. We did indeed have a good time together.

I hope he had a "good excuse" for this. Talking on the cellphone is perhaps not one? The insurance company may not be that willing to pay spontaneously?

Yikes, that looks like a hard way to have a carwash.
I agree that its going to be an expensive lesson for the young man.

That's one expensive cell phone call.

Oh MY! When will people learn to pay attention, total attention, to their driving?

He looks young. I wonder if that was Daddy's truck. If so, he might make the newspaper twice this week. First for wreckless driving, and the second time... check the obituaries!!!

Oops... I mean "reckless."

It must be nice not to worry about losing one's truck into the river.

He looks so young! MAN! Does he even feel responsible...or is he really masking it well!?!
