A Wading River man was ticketed Saturday after a rising tide carried his stalled pickup truck out to sea at a time when the vehicle was not supposed to be parked on the beach.
Raymond Schneider told police he was putting his personal watercraft in the water just off Hulse Landing Road in Wading River about 1 p.m. when his truck died. He was not able to restart the red 1985 Ford pickup truck, but left it in the neutral, police said. The rising tide and the weight of the trailered watercraft pulled the truck into the water. Mr. Schneider told police a friend came and towed the truck out of the water.
He was issued a summons for having a motor vehicle on the beach between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
