No one was hurt in the wreck near Country Club Boulevard and Southeast 10th Street, and the driver was able to get out of the car, police said. The car was pulled from the canal around 4:10 p.m. after it was submerged for about two hours.

“I heard a boom, looked up, and a saw a car, airborne, fly over the embankment and into the canal,” witness Steve Barker said.
