CALIFORNIA (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A man was driving along Pebble Beach's scenic 17 Mile Drive on Thursday morning when his Cadillac Escalade splashed into the ocean.
A witness said the white Escalade was traveling at a high rate of speed when it careened off 17 Mile Drive, plowed over a sandy beach, and zoomed into the ocean at 11:15 a.m. The Escalade finally stopped just beyond the wave break and its mangled fender floated away.
The driver, a 26-year-old Pebble Beach man, was able to escape from his vehicle and wade to shore through 4-foot deep water. He suffered moderate injuries.
Before the driver was transported to a Monterey hospital, he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, California Highway Patrol Officer Robert Lehman said. Thursday's crash happened on a beach that stretches below Cypress Point Golf Course. Crews worked quickly to tow the fuel-leaking Escalade out of the ocean and successfully pulled it out by noon.
Witnesses told officials that they thought the driver was attempted to kill himself by intentionally driving into the ocean. But the crash turned out to be accidental and was primarily caused by the driver's intoxication, Lehman said. "This is not the first time this happened in this area," Lehman said of vehicles landing in the ocean off 17 Mile Drive. "Those are sharp turns, so there is not a large margin for error."
