A young man driving a small truck lost his brakes early this morning and tried to find a place where he could bring it to a natural stop and picked the road down to the harbor. But down the boat ramp and into the bay he went – Whoosh!
The young man crawled out as the truck sank. He’s okay. There are a number of cans of paint in the truck, but none of them are leaking according to sources at the scene.
The Coast Guard and Depoe Bay Public Works are already in the process of removing the truck. In fact they’ve got it within working range of the boat ramp.
The ramp will be closed until the retrieval is complete. More information as it’s available.
