PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- A woman's quick thinking helped her escape from her sinking Smart car, just seconds before it fully submerged.
Madaline Keeble said she drove through what looked like a water main break at the Sawgrass Country Club and didn't realize how saturated the ground was under it.
“I saw some water on the road and I saw the security officer in his car at the corner, and I made my turn and 20 seconds later I had water in my Smart car up to my ears," Keeble said.
Keeble said her little Smart car quickly filled up with water, and that's when she grabbed her belongings and fled.
The road where it happened is blocked off as a property management company investigates.
