There are more questions than answers surrounding a fatal accident that happened Monday morning in Aransas County, after witnesses reported seeing a man drive a car into the waters of Conn Brown Harbor.
"All of a sudden we hear a vehicle revving the engine, and when I look across, you see the big ol' splash coming out and the tires sticking out of the water, and you realize, inside the water," witness Jose Hernandez said.
The accident happened just before 8 a.m. across from the Red Fish Bay boathouse. According to witnesses who worked near the scene, they heard the sound of an engine revving before spotting a silver car becoming submerged in 15 feet of water.
Minutes after workers called 911, EMS crews and the U.S. Coast Guard arrived at the scene. However, it was too late to save the driver of the silver car.
"There was a gentleman on the other side that was very distraught, and the police and the fire department were holding him, kept him back, as they loaded the individual into the back of the ambulance," said Debra Adams, a witness who called 911.
As of 5 p.m. Monday, the identity of the driver has not been released, and there has been no word from investigators on whether or not the driver intentionally drove into the water.
