Car submerged at Fishermans Beach


A CAR that can't swim and isn't wearing a life jacket is in deep water off the boat ramp at Fishermans Beach.

The white sedan, believed to be a Lexus, was totally submerged by 8.45am - and the tide is rising, The Manly Daily reports.

Northern Beaches duty officer Insp Graeme Pickering said the driver of the car, a Curl Curl man, drove down the ramp at 12.30am today to be closer to the water.

He said that when the driver applied the brake at the foot of the boat ramp, the car failed to stop and slid into the water. The driver couldn't open the door of his car and had to climb out the window.

Insp Pickering said that when the police arrived, the car was completely submerged but the headlights were still on.

He said police divers were on their way to Collaroy. After the divers place a hook around the car, it will be towed ashore.
