JeepWatch2019 has ended: Tractor equipment retrieves abandoned SUV from Myrtle Beach’s shores

Police in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina said Thursday morning that the Jeep's driver got curious about driving on the beach before Hurricane Dorian moved across the Carolina coasts but ended up stuck in the sand.

The driver was forced to abandon the SUV until conditions improved.

As Dorian brought heavy rains to the region, the vehicle was battered by waves and damaged by the storm's wrath.

Social media users created the hashtag #jeepwatch2019 to talk and shared memes about the sight. Someone even gave the Jeep a bagpipe salute.

The owner of the Jeep told WMBF that his cousin borrowed the Jeep, and his cousin thought it would be cool to go to the beach to get a quick sunrise video.

“So he got on the beach and started driving it," the owner, who did want to be identified, told WMBF. "I guess there’s that runoff there and he didn’t realize it was in front of him, he was looking out the window when he went off and got stuck, which you can see he actually banged up the bumper a bit,” the owner explained.

The Jeep survived the storm overnight, and tractor equipment retrieved the Jeep off the beach early Friday morning.

There sure are stupid people.  I'm glad I'm not that cousin.  I live near Myrtle Beach and saw that Jeep on TV so many times.  It was a nice smile from the wind and rain.

It seems I am not speaking the king's English because some of your members don't know what I'm talking about. So I will just go to one of your other 10,000 forums. LOL
