Man Drives into Edgartown Harbor

Martha’s Vineyard Times: A Ford Explorer plunged off a bulkhead into the harbor near the Reading Room in Edgartown just before 1:00 p.m. Monday [July 10] after the driver attempted a U-turn and hit the gas instead of the brake, assistant Fire Chief R. Andrew Kelly said.

The Reading Room is located next to Collins Beach in Edgartown.

One person was pulled from the car. He was not injured. A couple putting their boat into the water at the beach watched the accident unfold and helped get the man out of his SUV, Assistant Chief Kelly said.
