Car wrecked in lake

Bad weather caused a car to become partially submerged in one of the College’s lakes this past weekend.

A white Jeep swerved off of Metzger Drive and into Lake Ceva across from Armstrong Hall at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11, according to police. It was snowing at the time.

Campus Police responded to a 911 call that did not detail whether anyone was injured, stuck in the car or in the lake.

Upon arrival, they found the driver of the car standing on the side of the road, accompanied by two witnesses.

The driver was observed to be shivering and was wet up to his knees.

Nevertheless, he was found to be in good condition after evaluation by Pennington Road EMS.

Witnesses stated that the car had been headed east on Metzger Drive north (proceeding from the main entrance in the direction of the Science Complex) when it began swerving from side to side.

The car then crossed the oncoming lane and hopped the curb, going over the bank and into the lake.

The driver was the only person involved in the accident and no other property was damaged.

The Jeep was towed out of the lake, and the driver refused further medical attention.
