CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – A car with the driver still inside was sinking quickly in a pond in Canfield Friday night.
When Canfield firefighters were called to the scene on Blueberry Hill Drive around 10:30 p.m., assistant chief Matt Rarick said the car was still sinking and the water had reached her neck.
The firefighters quickly dropped their gear and rescued the woman from the car. A tow truck later pulled the car from the pond.
“As they got into the water it was up to their chest, by the time they were able to get to her it was up to their neck. As they removed her they were able to remove her from the car before it sunk under the water,” Rarick said.
The driver was not injured and no one else was in the car. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
