A 91-year old man was taken to the hospital this afternoon after driving his car into Bear Creek. The accident happened around 3 p.m. at the Bear Creek Dog Park parking lot.
Witnesses say the man was leaving when he accelerated through two fences, across a trail and into the creek narrowly missing trees and boulders. Friends of his rushed to help him out of the car. They say he appeared to only have minor injuries.
Cynthia Sloski says she couldn't believe what was happening, "He wasn't going very fast. I mean, it was maybe 15 or 20, I mean it was just meandering and we looked, and we were in shock and it, the car's just going along through the fence and into the creek."
No one else was injured in the crash, and the man's dog appeared to be doing well.
