Witnesses tell WITN a boater attempting to get his boat out of the water Saturday afternoon at the Clark's Neck boat ramp in Beaufort county managed to submerge both his boat and truck.
Witnesses say the man says he put his truck in park and was trying to get his boat out of the water, when the truck began to go backward and both the boat and truck submerged under water.
The witnesses said the driver was able to escape his vehicle unharmed.
Both ramps were closed down for a hour according to Witnesses, while tow trucks were called in to help. Which led to a backup because people were unable to get their boats out of the water.
One ramp was reopened after an hour, while the others was closed down for hours.
By around 7pm both the truck and boat were pulled out.
