CENTRAL PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - A vehicle veered into a drainage area off I-95 between 10th Avenue and Forest Hill Boulevard Friday morning.
The vehicle was northbound when it apparently lost control and went over and embankment and into knee-to-waist deep water.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded and deployed a ladder to help rescue the driver... who tried to walk away from the crash.
Firefighters were eventually able to pull the man from the water.
He has been taken for treatment to a local hospital.
Traffic was not affected by the incident.
