OCEAN CITY — Ocean City first-responders had their hands full on Tuesday when a vehicle left a beach-front parking area on 82nd Street and got suspended half on and half off the beach with two occupants inside.
On Tuesday, the Ocean City Fire Department responded to a reported motor vehicle accident involving a vehicle on the beach. Shortly after firefighters and paramedics were alerted, the call was upgraded to a motor vehicle collision with reported entrapment.
First-responders arrived on the scene and found the front end of the vehicle suspended over the beach with the rear of the vehicle still in an elevated parking area. The vehicle was very unstable with two occupants still inside and a large crowd gathering on the beach and surrounding area.
Firefighters and paramedics were able to brace the vehicle to keep it from rolling over and safely extracted the two occupants. Crews were able to secure the vehicle and create a safe space until the towing company arrived. The two occupants removed from the vehicle refused medical treatment. The investigation is still ongoing.
