A suspected drunk driver drove his car into the lake from the East 55th Marina around 8:00 a.m. Monday morning.

Police say a passer-by saw the car and called 9-1-1.

The driver however, was able to free himself and swim ashore before EMS arrived.

Since the driver wasn't 100% sure if he had any passengers, the Cleveland Fire Dept. dive team got in and searched the water.

No other persons were found.

The car was eventually fished out of the water.

The driver, whose name is not being released, was transported to the VA hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Charges are pending.
