This accident occoured on the beach on July 5, 2004 at 2:45am
The driver of this vehicle was traveling eastbound on the beach approximately 4 miles east of Crystal Beach in Caplen, Texas This is what remains of a GMC Yukon after hitting a steel pole on the beach going around 60mph.
The driver and passenger had to be freed from the vehicle using Jaws and were both air lifted from the beach to UTMB in Galveston Texas. The two are expected to be ok. The pipe they hit was an old oil well and is approx. 14" at the smallest diameter and stands almost 6 ft tall. The pole did not move.
The old well has been in the same place for more than 20 years and no one has ever hit it. Later that day I put reflective tape on the pole. Regardless, Drinking and driving too fast on the beach caused this accident!
Please people, Be Careful! and DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!
