A car ran off Yaquina Bay Road this morning just west of Toledo. The vehicle careened off the road and into the river near Criteser Loop, sinking all the way to the bottom. Reports say the male driver managed to pull himself out of the vehicle and make it to the steep river bank where he was hauled up by a witness.
The man appeared to be cold but generally alright. But he still wound up being transported to the hospital to be evaluated. No word on what caused the vehicle to leave the road.
Rawleys has been called to the scene to extract the vehicle.
