GLOUCESTER, Mass. —A stuck flip-flop may be responsible for causing a vehicle to plunge into the water off the Stone Pier in Gloucester Friday.
Sky 5 showed the vehicle approximately 15 to 20 feet from the pier, in a shallow area of the river.
According to the Gloucester Fire dispatcher, the vehicle accelerated into the water after a flip-flop got stuck under the gas pedal.
The two men inside the vehicle escaped without injury.
The harbormaster was at the scene to help get the vehicle out of the water.
