Car ended up in our lake

Was the radiator dry and he needed water?

No he was following a car in the fast lane and then tried to pass on the right at the same time as the first car changed to the curb lane on the right.  The passing car clipped the first car and somehow ended up in our lake.

We had a lakeside view so to speak except the smoke was so thick that we could not see the details either through binoculars or strong camera lenses.

Usually we can see details but the smoke really affected perspective.

The driver in the car that ended up in the lake escaped through the sunroof and was taken to hospital in an ambulance.  Folks at the scene said that he appeared to be fine.  The driver of the first car, the one that got clipped had no injuries.

Colin’s camera was able to capture a bit more and with enhanced photoshop we got this photo.  To the right of the boat which is one of the few ski boats allowed on our lake, you will see a white dot at the shoreline and just above that is a person who happens to be a firefighter.  We believe based on the people looking down at the lake that that is where the car went into  the lake.

It is getting dark and all the emergency vehicles are highlighted.

Apparently the car is fully submerged.  An RCMP boat was trying to locate the vehicle.

The submerged car was a Lexus 8-O,  mine is just fine parked in our driveway.  I don’t have much sympathy for the Lexus driver.  Anyone who drives irresponsibly deserves their fate.

    So many drivers out there that drive like that and like you said deserve their fate. good thing he survived.

  2. Seriously bad driving. My Mom used to live on a terrible curve near Falkland and cars blew off there into her yard at least every 3-4 months. Once it happened when I was visiting sleeping on the couch. 3am a car flipped upside down. I went out to see if anyone was hurt and there was no one around, just the car upside down with lights on. I was worried I was going to find a body. It turns out that the girl who was driving was drunk, walked 1 mile down the road and told that neighbor she had been raped because she had no idea what happened to her. She was not raped, just got knocked silly so didn’t realize she had been in a car accident. ICBC kept having to pay out for new fences and Mom kept finding car bits in her grass.
