Three Empty Bottles of Smirnoff Vodka and a Titanic Mistake
Today, around 4 p.m. a two-wheel drive Ford Ranger met an ugly fate on the Samoa Beach. According to Steve Young who took these photos and video, when he arrived at the beach around 3:50 p.m., he could see the truck stuck in the sand with waves slapping the tires. He and several others who were in the area went over to it and discovered that there were three empty bottles of Smirnoff Vodka in the back which may or may not have contributed to the vehicle being in that predicament.
Later, someone else noted that the battery had been removed.He and others attempted to call the Coast Guard, the Arcata Police Department, and the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office for assistance. However, the incoming tide soon swallowed up the truck, rolled it over, and chewed on it for a bit. Young said that he talked to a marine biologist at the beach who told him the truck had been stuck in the sand since the day before.
