Police Remove Woman From Overturned Car After Early Morning Crash
PORT ST. LUCIE — Police officials said officers pulled a woman from a car that overturned in a pond.
Her car went into a retention pond near a canal west of Interstate 95 at Southwest Galiano Road and Southwest Cadima Street, according to the Port St. Lucie Police Department.
Officials said on social media she went home uninjured after three officers got her out of the car.
Police spokesperson Sgt. Keith Boham said the woman called 911 as water entered the car.
He said details of how the car ended up upside down in the water were unavailable. He said police do not believe alcohol was involved.
Officers Adam Doty, Dominick Durbin and Kevin Fry all got to the crash first and went into the water to get the woman out of the car, according to a Facebook post by police officials.
“Somehow she lost control of the vehicle,” Boham said. “The driver was a little ‘out of it’ and details were sparse. “She was just involved in a serious accident, so it’s understandable.”
It is unclear if the red four-door car was the only vehicle involved in the crash or if there were other vehicles involved before it fell into the pool, he said.
It stated that, at first, she didn’t respond to the officers, but then crawled to the front of the car and was pulled to safety.
The name and age of the woman, who was the only person in the car, was unavailable at the time of this report, Boham said.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Whenever you are behind the wheel of a car, please make sure you are not being distracted by texting, talking on your phone or communicating with your passengers. If you are in an accident where someone didn’t follow the posted signs or signals, please call me so that we can discuss your rights.”
