Driver Crashes Into Pond

Posted: Updated:

A Lawton man crashed his car into a pond Wednesday morning and was saved by people who witnessed the accident.

It appears the man had a seizure, moments before driving into the pond at the intersection of Southeast Lee Boulevard and Flower Mound Road.

Witnesses said the driver was traveling west on Lee when he crossed the median, went through a barbed wire fence, and into the water.  He was trapped inside his vehicle at first, but witnesses quickly pulled him to safety.

He was treated at the scene and then taken to Comanche County Memorial Hospital.
