ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - An official says fire rescue swimmers pulled a drowning man out of a submerged car in the Oakland Estuary but that the man died on the way to a hospital.

Alameda Fire Department Capt. James Colburn tells KGO-TV (https://abc7ne.ws/1J0GzRb ) emergency crews were called to the waterfront Saturday on reports of a submerged vehicle.

Colburn says witnesses reported the SUV speeding through a parking lot before it plunged into the water.

The victim was identified only as an adult male and Colburn says his death remains under investigation.
