PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. -- A truck pulling a trailer ended up in a canal after a two-vehicle crash in central Palm Beach County Friday.

It happened around noon near Lawrence and Lantana Roads.

Video from Chopper 5 showed a truck on its side in the water and a black vehicle that appeared to have struck a light pole.
