CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Padre Island National Seashore reminds drivers to use caution on area beaches during the winter.

"Winter driving isn't only hazardous up north," the park officials posted. "Although there are less people on our beach, and the sand is generally hard-packed, visitors still need to adhere to the beach speed limits, wear their seatbelts, and drive cautiously."

The car was reportedly traveling below the speed limit when heavy fog caused the driver not to notice a half buried log.

"The darkness, heavy fog, and sand mask the dangerous debris often found on our beach," the Padre Island National Seashore posted.

Everyone in the rollover was reportedly wearing their seat-belts and nobody was hurt.
