A white truck crashed into a seawall in Cayucos on Thursday, March 9, 2017.

A white pickup ended up stuck on top of a 5-foot seawall in Cayucos on Thursday evening after the driver lost control of his vehicle, according to Cayucos Fire Department Capt. Jeff Minetti.

The vehicle spun out before hitting the seawall about 6:55 p.m. on Ocean Front Avenue in front of surf store Good Clean Fun, California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Trenery said. The driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI and remained in custody at San Luis Obispo County Jail on Friday.

Witness Vanessa Garcia Felix said the truck was parked facing the wall, and when the vehicle “started peeling out” in reverse, the driver lost control of his truck.

“Seriously, thank God no one was on the sidewalk or by the swings,” Garcia Felix of Templeton wrote on Facebook. “My daughters were playing there minutes before this happened.”

The driver was the only person in the truck, and no one was injured, Minetti said. CHP and the Cayucos Fire Department responded to the scene.
