ROY -- A woman and her vehicle ended up waist deep in water after crashing into a canal Monday morning.
Around 11 a.m. a 29-year-old woman driving a gray 2007 Cadillac CTS was traveling northbound on Interstate 15 and was exiting at 5600 south in Roy.
The woman claims she blacked out, causing her car to go off an embankment and through a chain-link fence, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Bryce Kohler said.
Kohler estimates the vehicle was traveling 45 to 50 mph.
The vehicle ended up in the Davis-Weber Canal, just outside Hill Air Force Base. The woman awoke to find her car about 3 feet under water. Officers had to assist her in getting out of the sunken vehicle, UHP Sgt. Brad Horne said.
The woman was uninjured and did not show any signs of intoxication, Kohler said.
"She was pretty lucky. This could have been a lot worse," Kohler said.
Fortunately UHP troopers were already nearby because of an unrelated motorcycle incident on the other side of the freeway. A motorcycle's rear tire blew and sent two riders to the hospital with minor injuries.
The northbound off-ramp was temporarily closed by UHP and Roy Fire Department.
Emergency workers pulled the car out of the canal. City workers were also on scene to make sure there was no damage to the canal, which services the surrounding cities' water supplies.
