Drunk Driver Crashes onto Beach. Early Monday morning (1:01 am) a caller reported that a car had crashed onto the beach at the end of Maravista Ave. Officers arrived to find an unoccupied car at the waterโ€™s edge and the tide had started to flood the front of the vehicle. The operator and lone occupant of the car was located attempting to hide in an adjacent yard. Falmouth Fire & Rescue responded, however the operator refused treatment at the scene. An investigation revealed that the car traveled through the stop sign at the end of Maravista Ave., went across Menauhant Rd. and then proceeded another 100+ ft. on the beach before coming to a stop at the edge of the water. As a result, the operator was placed under arrest for OUI-Liquor (drunk driving), Operating to Endanger, Operating with a Suspended License, Speeding and a Marked Lanes Violation. It was also determined that a warrant had been issued for his arrest for Uninsured Motor Vehicle and Unregistered Motor Vehicle. ... See MoreSee Less

That bridge to the Vineyard doesnโ€™t open till summer Everyone knows this !

Very very lucky person , because my nephew wasnt so lucky , in that same spot years ago , just say you had an angel with you , and his name was Joshua Lopes ๐Ÿ˜‡

Maybe put a ramp so they can get a good flying start to the Vineyard?

Try slowing the heโ€™ll down

Everyone is acting like this is something new. I grew up there. It was a regular occurrence. Itโ€™s happened dozens of times over the years. A few good size boulders would stop it, but that would be a very different picture. Since the operators usually have that โ€œ disease โ€œ the law suits would fly if they got hurt too

I don't get it .. How many people have gone through there. You have to be flying to get over the sand into the water right? Isn't there metal sign in front of it? I don't get it

Idk how many times this has to happen for something to be done

Why isn't there a blinking LED light stop sign

I guess you just cant fix STUPID!!

Does he lose his boating licence too??

Put some speed-tables at the end of that road before the Stop sign ๐Ÿ›‘

We need to put a net up there to catch vehicles I guess๐Ÿค”

Again?!? It's really not that difficult to stop at that stop sign. Don't drink and drive! People drive way too fast on that street.

I say donโ€™t do anything about it. Itโ€™s the perfect way to catch drunk drivers. There is no driving away from that.

how long do you think dingus tried to back out of that parking spot before fleeing to the adjacent yard ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I literally just had to check the date on this. Didnโ€™t this literally just happen

He had to been HAULING!!! Wow

Just left the club ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ kidding

This one and Central Ave..

Need some jersey barriers at that location,,how many cars have tried to swim to the Martha's vineyard

And a happy st Patrickโ€™s day to you

That has happened so many times. Must be somebody not familiar with the area !

People will never learn about drunk driving!!! Sad!

How do you keep this guy out of an automobile? Putting him in the slammer only puts the burden of supporting him on the taxpayers.

Again??? I feel like a read this same article, different drivers and vehicles, on a monthly basis!

Claire Callan Thought you may wanted to know about this traffic advisory.

Falmouth Police Department The digital sign near the Palmer Ave/Jones Road intersection says the detour starts at 7am. Can we get some clarification on what time the detour starts each day so we can plan accordingly?

Thanks for looking out my friend!

Thanks for the heads up ๐Ÿ˜Š
