The driver of a BMW SUV crashed into Lakewood Lake in Waterbury on Monday night and called police after getting out of the car.

On Tuesday morning, emergency crews pulled the vehicle from the water.

Waterbury police said the driver crashed his vehicle into the water around 11 p.m. on Monday and called police from a nearby gas station.

Police could not find the car last night, but it surfaced on Tuesday morning, so emergency crews and divers responded to Farmwood Road and North Main Street and retrieved the car.

No additional information was immediately available.
