According to witnesses, the Ford F-150 was backing down the ramp at Pirate's Point, and the driver stopped and got out to release the boat from the trailer—leaving a female passenger in the front seat. But suddenly, the truck rolled backwards into the Lake, before the passenger could jump into the driver's seat to stop it.

The truck floated near the docks for a while, alongside the boat it was previously pulling, until a tow truck arrived and pulled it out.
