Driver Shoots Way To Safety After Water Crash
ROSEVILLE, Calif. --
A driver whose vehicle crashed into a water-filled canal on Sunday used a gun to blast out a window and escape to safety, police said.
Authorities said a sport utility vehicle was northbound on Industrial Avenue when it left the road just north of Blue Oaks Boulevard and landed in the water at about 9 a.m.
The driver, seeking to save his own life, used a gun to shoot out a window as the SUV sank, a bystander said.
The driver was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center for treatment. His name was not immediately available.
The SUV eventually became submerged in the water.
Police were investigating the cause of the crash.
