CapeCodOnline: Deputy Harbormaster Mike Hathaway was headed back to his Edgartown [MA] office from a check of the mooring field in his patrol boat when he saw a silver pickup truck speeding along Chappaquiddick Road toward the ferry landing.

He was worried because the truck was going fast — he estimated 50 to 60 mph — and didn’t seem to be slowing down as it got closer to the landing.

“It looked like something right out of a movie,” Hathaway said after the truck vaulted off the raised landing and hit the water with a big splash then began to sink.
