Motor Man and I have seen some sights during our many trips to Carova, NC over the past several years.
But, this was a first (for us):
We were told that it happened late Saturday night and was caused by the transmission overheating. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
Wild horses on the beach pictures will resume in my next Carova post. They certainly provide prettier photos.
(I had thought to make this a “Wordless Wednesday” post, but decided my readers would probably like a little information.)
~These Days Of Mine~
That was not a good day for the owner of that vehicle. At all.
Oh My Goodness! Driving in the sand must have been a bit much for that truck! Looking forward to the horse pics.
WOW…..I have to wonder if it was stuck in the sand and that may have led to the overheating…….at any rate, it’s a shame!
Oops! Not saying they were behaving badly. transmissions do overheat but have to wonder just what they were doing. I am very glad no one was hurt. We currently have sea turtles nesting on Venice Beach and it is patrolled at night. Vehicles are not allowed on beaches here. Dianna, do you have sea turtles nesting?
We occasionally see that an area has been cordoned off to protect sea turtle nests there on the beach. I think there’s a group there that keeps a close eye on that. Apparently transmissions overheating just from driving in the (sometimes) deep sand does happen. It’s a scary thought!
Yes, it is scary! I’m looking forward to horse photos, too!
“… when you’re hot, you’re hot .. ” sorry.. first thing I though of .. glad there were no injuries !
Yikes! I didn’t think anyone could experience a bad day at the beach, but that poor owner of the truck did.
