"I heard this giant crash. (I) came out here and went out and there's a UPS truck floating in the middle of the bay," a witness said. "There's no rubber on the road. There's no screech marks in the grass. You don't have to be a police officer to see that."

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said no injuries were reported. The driver crawled out of the truck and made it to shore through the shallow water.
