Atlantic Beach police said it happened around 7 p.m. Saturday near the Doubletree Hotel pier.

“Something I’ve never seen,” Carr said. “I’m 41 and grew up on the beach and been around boats my entire life and never seen anything like it. The last thing you expect to happen is a 48-foot sport fishing boat barreling toward the shore.”

Police said at least seven people were on the boat. Two were taken to the hospital. They were expected to be OK. An investigation into the cause of the crash continued Sunday by NC Wildlife.

Reminds me of the oil tanker scene from Julia Robert's movie, "Leave the World Behind".

Was this a medical emergency or a BWI? That's crazy, not to mention that boat cost a pretty penny. I hope the insurance is paid up or somebody will be sleeping on the streets tonight.

Surprised a pile of illegals didn’t pour out of that thing like a fire ant bed.

Should have put red coloring all over everything to let people know it was serious. It's just not as scary unless everything is in red.

Boats don't have wheels. It's not going anywhere once it touches the sand.

"Terrifying" is a bit dramatic. If I'm a passenger, I'm putting on my life jacket and hopping off in deeper water shortly prior to beaching.
