Car Takes a Nose Dive Into Corpus Christi Bay

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A Chevy Avalanche took a nose dive into the water near the American Bank Center at around 7 a.m. Sunday, and a Channel 3 viewer caught it all on tape.

Thankfully, the two people inside managed to get out of the sinking truck. They were checked out at the scene, and both are doing fine.

Police said the driver meant to put the vehicle in reverse, but put it in drive instead.

"I just came over in the morning to take pic of the sunrise with my camera," said Mike Zapata, the witness who caught video of what happened. "I heard a snap. Next thing I see is this Avalanche out in the bay."

The Corpus Christi Police Dive Team was called out to help get the truck out of the water.
