HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Macomb County sheriff’s deputies have pulled a 23-year-old woman from a vehicle that became partially submerged in a drainage ditch northeast of Detroit.

The sheriff’s office says a trucker called 911 about 8:45 a.m. Wednesday after seeing a motorist veer off Interstate 94 in Harrison Township and into the ditch.

Deputies found the driver unresponsive in the front seat of the locked and running vehicle. Water from ditch was about half-way up the vehicle’s windows and rising.

They broke a window and pulled the driver out before the vehicle became completely submerged in the ditch.

The driver was being treated at an area hospital.
