BARRY COUNTY, Mich. — One person was trapped in a vehicle after it was partially submerged in water Monday morning.

It happened at around 8:20 a.m. in the southbound lanes of North Avenue in Johnston Township.

The Barry County Sheriff’s Office said the driver of a 2009 four-door Toyota lost control, and the car rolled onto its roof. Authorities said the car was submerged in about two feet of water.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

It doesn’t appear drugs or alcohol were factors in this crash.
