The preliminary investigation determined the vehicle's driver lost control of the vehicle and it went off the roadway approximately 30-40 feet before the vehicle became submerged into a retention pond. The vehicle driver and passenger were able to exit the vehicle safely before police arrived on scene. The driver remained on scene with police. The passenger of the vehicle sustained a minor injury and was treated on the scene by Emergency Medical Services. Due to the location of the vehicle and the resources needed, the decision was made by police to retrieve the vehicle in the daylight hours.

The case is currently being investigated by an officer in the Department's Fourth Precinct.
