A car veered off the road and into a pond at the intersection of I-95 and State Road 100 just before 5 p.m. today. No one was hurt.

The car was occupied only by a driver, who managed to crawl out to dry ground quickly after the crash, which left the vehicle, a Chrysler, half-submerged and tilting forward.

The crash took place at 4:54 as the driver, whose identity has not been released, was taking the on-ramp off State Road 100 to go south on I-95. The cause of the crash is not known.

The Sheriff’s Office, Flagler County Fire Rescue, the Palm Coast Fire Department and the Palm Coast Fire Police all responded, but there was no road blockage, and the scene was expected to clear relatively quickly. Saxon’s Towing of Bunnell was dispatched to fish the vehicle out of the water.

Saxon’s was involved in fishing a vehicle out of the pond at almost the same location, off the southbound off-ramp, nearly three years ago, though in that case the car was almost fully submerged and deputies and paramedics had to dive in to rescue a man from drowning in his car. The man recovered fully.

    First clue, Check the phone lol I see 75% on phones driving especially in A.M. hour.

  2. Deb says:

    How many times has this occurred in the last 5 years, same spot. .

  3. Lori says:

    Steve the fine print said it was just before 5 PM, weather may have been a factor or an aggressive driver could have cut him off , not every accident can be caused on the driver being on the phone, just my opinion. His family must be glad he safe at home tonight and not injured !

    It appears the driver was able to break the window and get out safely. Whatever tool he used to get out, I need this in my car. Thank God no one died or was injured.

    This is what happens when you get the cheap silver organic brake pads from Advance Auto or even Autozone. Should have gotten the Gold ceramic pads. Get what you pay for!

    Time to FIX it with a round-a-bout.

    I drive past all four of these catch ponds multiple times each day and I am completely baffled as to HOW someone would end up in one of these ponds unless there was a mechanical failure of his car or another vehicle involved that forced him off the road. There’s more to this story that we will never read.

  8. Water sign says:

    Fish the car out! That’s s big catch!

    I was the driver of the car. I can assure you I was not on the phone, however I do agree a lot of people use their phones while driving. I have a squeaky clean driving record. I work full time and go to school. I was on my way to class. Unfortunately, the road is always wet there even when it’s not raining. There’s always water running across and there should be a guard rail as that pond is very close to the road. I’m not the first person who has crashed into the pond. I was able to roll my window down and crawl out of it. Although I was told today you can use the ends of your seat head rest to bust a window out.

    @Lori was only using the AM phone use as a general example
    . I can read. Allegedly he was not on phone. Anywsy its not that wet unless speeding to fast for turn,,, Driver error. Glad hes ok LORI

  11. Nancy says:

    Ryan, I am glad you are all right. There are always people who have opinions about everything, even when they don’t have any facts. Keep safe and good luck with your schooling.
