A vehicle crashed through the end of the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier on Saturday morning.
The first call came in at 6:52 a.m. for a car that went through the end of the wooden pier off 15th Street, police said.
“From what we have, the vehicle went on the pier, drove all the way off the edge of the pier and went into the water,” said Virginia Beach police spokesman Jude Brenya. “So it’s somewhere at the end of the pier right now.”
Kaylynn Crawford, 16, and a friend were running north on the Boardwalk when they stopped to take a video of the sunrise next to the pier around 6:50 a.m. Just before Crawford started to record, she heard a big crash on the pier, apparently from the vehicle crashing through an access gate at the pier’s entrance.
