Vehicle crashes over embankment of Pamet River

– A car went over an embankment ending up in the Pamet River. Luckily it was low tide and the elderly driver was able to get out of the BMW sedan. He was evaluated but declined to go the hospital. The crash happened in the parking lot of the U.S. Post Office off Truro Center Road. Truro Police are investigating.

In the photo below, a Toyota Prius is seen submerged in almost the exact same spot on January 15th, 2015. That was a freezing cold day and it was high tide but the driver was able to escape before the car sank.
