They were able to get the driver out of the vehicle. When Fire Rescue crews arrived, a paramedic from SPFR jumped into the water as the vehicle was sinking and rescued the passenger out of the vehicle.

Pinellas Park Fire Rescue placed a ladder into the water so the paramedic and passenger could safely make it to shore.

The couple in the vehicle were uninjured. FHP is investigating the crash.
