A car was driven into muddy bed of the C&O Canal in Georgetown around 3 p.m. today, according to D.C. police.
As of 3:30 p.m., the driver was still inside the car, while the vehicle was on its side, according to the Metropolitan Police Department’s Officer Hugh Carew. That description jibes with a picture tweeted from the scene, which shows a car on its side.
Emergency crews are on the scene trying to rescue the driver, according to Carew. At this point, it wasn’t clear how the car ended up in the canal or whether the driver was injured.
