PLYMOUTH, Utah (AP) - Emergency responders rescued a man who suffered two broken legs after his car crashed into a canal in Plymouth.

KUTV in Salt Lake City reports (https://bit.ly/1NTpgkQ) the crash happened Friday and resulted in the vehicle being partially submerged and filling with water.

A call to 911 reported that the 45-year-old man, from Fielding, was pinned inside and trying to keep himself above the water.

Authorities say a Utah Highway Patrol sergeant and a trooper with the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office used a ladder from a nearby home to reach the car’s roof.

They say a sheriff’s trooper freed the victim’s legs.



The man was transported to a hospital and then airlifted a hospital in Ogden.

The investigation into what led to the crash remains under investigation.
