9:21 AM: If you heard and/or saw the early morning commotion off Beach Drive – a car went into the water, according to Beach Drive Blog, which reports nobody was inside. The BDB report says a concrete block was found in the car, possibly used to weigh down the gas pedal and “launch” the car into the water off the embankment. Stolen car? No word so far; we’ll follow up.

9:38 AM: Since no official police information is available so far, we asked the BDB team if the car had been towed from the water – Rhonda confirms it was (and has published a followup with dayilght aftermath photos).


  1. Well, this might get points for novel experimentation, the bar for dumb ideas was just raised a bit.

    To the dumbies: gas in cars is not welcome around wildlife. Stupid you.

  2. Holy crap, who does this? I hope no body was found in the trunk. This is eerie and stupid.

  5. It looks like it was an SUV or min-van type vehicle according to my husband (aka “Scupper”) who was one of the first people on the scene – checking to see if anyone needed to be rescued.
