DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a woman was receiving a driving lesson before she accidentally drove her vehicle into a Des Moines pond.

Crews from the Des Moines Fire Department responded Thursday to a pond at Water Works Park and found a white minivan partially submerged in the water.

The driver and a passenger were able to escape without injury. Officials say the passenger was teaching the driver how to drive when the incident occurred.

A barrier was placed around the vehicle. Officials determined no chemicals or oil was leaking into the water.
