LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old man pushed off the convertible top of his car and swam to safety after driving into a Lincoln reservoir.

Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood says Chen Dou told officers he was driving north on West Shore Drive about 12:30 a.m. Monday when he swerved to avoid two animals in his way. His car ran off the road and into Pine Lake reservoir.

Flood says Dou wasn’t injured. He told officers that he swam about 30 feet to shore.

Officers cited Dou for careless driving. His car was pulled from the reservoir later on Monday.
