When they say Jeeps are good for off-roading, this isn't what they mean.

A Jeep Wrangler wound up completely submerged in Buzzards Bay on Sunday after a man used it to back his boat into the water at Taylor Point Marina. Josephine Bevilacqua lives right across the street from the marina and posted footage of the chaos on her Facebook page Monday morning.

Luckily, no one was in the vehicle at the time and no one was injured, but passerby couldn't help but stop and marvel at the craziness of the situation. Even the Jeep seemed to appreciate the irony, as its windshield wipers continued to move back and forth, even when completely submerged. Unfortunately, it seemed the wipers weren't able to wick away that much water, though!

Bevilacqua said she believes the combination of moss and seaweed on the marina's ramp caused the Jeep to lose traction and slide back into the water.

Bourne Fire Department IAFF Local 1717 was dispatched to the scene yesterday afternoon just after 1:15 p.m. A spokesperson for the department said that the ramp was shut down and crews were standing by and assisting the tow company as they removed the vehicle from the water.

Fire crews were on the scene for a little over an hour and notified the Coast Guard of the incident as well.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
