LEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Rescuers saved the driver of a vehicle that flipped over and partially submerged in water. The driver is hospitalized with serious injuries.

The accident happened just after 8 p.m. Friday near the intersection of 58th St. & 106th Ave. in Lee Township.

Officials say the vehicle left the road and went down a steep embankment before landing upside down in water. Someone nearby entered the water and helped the trapped driver until emergency crews arrived.

Officials say several deputies arrived and immediately got in the water. A deputy got inside the vehicle and freed the driver.

Rescuers had to pull the driver back up the steep embankment before taking the person to the hospital.

Rescuers made several searches and found no one else in the vehicle.

Investigators are still looking into what caused the crash.
