Car in dam prompts res­cue

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

PO­LICE mounted a res­cue op­er­a­tion, call­ing in divers, af­ter a car crashed into a dam in the Der­went Val­ley last week.

Wit­nesses re­ported a ve­hi­cle had run off Boyer Rd in Dromedary and into a dam on Fri­day night but were un­able to tell po­lice if the driver had been in it.

The car was fully sub­merged and, with poor vis­i­bil­ity, divers were un­able to tell if there was any­one in it.

When po­lice pulled the ve­hi­cle from the dam, they found it was empty. A man was then lo­cated near the scene suf­fer­ing from hy­pother­mia.

He was taken to hos­pi­tal for treat­ment and was as­sist­ing po­lice with their inquiries. Boyer Rd was closed for sev­eral hours dur­ing the op­er­a­tion.
