Police jumped into action after a man accidentally drove his truck into a canal in Port St. Lucie.

Officers say an elderly man was at a boat ramp at Oak Hammock Park.

He thought his vehicle was in drive, but it was actually in reverse, and he accidentally backed his truck and boat into the water.

Police responded and towed the fully submerged truck and boat out of the water.

That driver wasn't hurt.
