CENTREVILLE, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a driver was rescued after her car rolled into Red Clay Creek in Centreville and she became trapped in the vehicle.

It happened about 7:20 a.m. Tuesday near Snuff Mill Road, troopers tell The Wilmington News Journal (delonline.us/20XYH6H). Authorities say firefighters and the New Castle County Surface Water Rescue Team got the 18-year-old driver out of the car. Paramedics say the driver was able to keep her head above water until she was freed.

First responders say the driver was admitted to Christiana Hospital in serious but stable condition for treatment of a head injury and exposure to the cold.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
