As the saying goes "If not for bad luck, you would have no luck at all". That very saying rings true for one man as he has been fined.
It must be a horrifying feeling to be in the driver's seat when your car is getting dragged into the water. And look, accidents truly do happen. But really, at what point do you have to look at the person the accident is happening to? This would be that point. It isn't irony, this isn't just necessarily a touch of bad luck.
One man decided to put his boat onto Onondaga Lake on August 9th and sadly needed quite a bit of help as he got his car stuck in the mud according to News 10. This was after completely missing the boat dock by 50 feet. If that isn't bad enough, it only got worse for this man come August 12, a mere 3 days later. In that instance, the man had his boat and Jeep Liberty completely pulled into the water. Only the roofline of the vehicle was visible.
On at least the second occasion the driver was indeed intoxicated and Geddes Police is working on the case when it comes to a DWI. That isn't the only troubling thing for this unnamed man, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is also involved. The reason? There was a fuel spill from the vehicle along with trash from the vehicle entering the lake. This is leaving the man with many charges against him on top of the DWI.
