A car crashed into a canal along Sunshine Boulevard in Lehigh Acres after the driver struck a power pole and lost control of her car.

According to the driver, she was driving home from taking her son to work in Lehigh Acres. She said a car went around her and startled her, causing her to hit the the edge of the road.

The driver said she had a juice in her cup holder that fell under her brake, which would not allow her to stop.

She said as she was coming around the bridge, the car began to swerve and she was not able to stop due to the cup behind her brakes.

She struck the pole, and then spun into the canal.

The driver was able to escape with minor injuries.
