Doesn't have to be alcohol - he could have been flying high

Drive fast, run off side of road, hit guy wire for the pole just about dead center (off center and it flips the car) travel up guy wire until front of car runs into pole and hooks on the hardware up there.

My tow buddy pulled a submerged pickup truck out of a boat ramp this afternoon; more common than the high wire act (ha, ha) in the picture. Brackish/tidal water, too, so it's a total.

John, just tell me the pickup truck was pointed UP the ramp, and not DOWN.

An older couple had launched their boat and were driving it and noticed it would not pick up speed and did not act right. They called for help and the boat company sent out a guy who also dove. He dove into the water and came up gasping for air. They had launched the boat still attached to the trailer. So you really can't fix stupid.

Well, he said it was submerged and I think still attached. After going into water trailer jackknifed and he said that was all that kept it from being worse. Apparently back tires hit algae slime on ramp and away he went.

Nose down? Like this:
