Vehicle Crashes Into Lake Wackena (PHOTO GALLERY)

No one is seriously injured as a car plunges into a lake in the Walnut Creek community.  Late Wednesday afternoon, El-Roy firefighters and EMS crews responded to the single vehicle accident on Lake Wackena Road.  The driver managed to escape the submerged vehicle by the time firefighters and EMS arrived at the scene.  The Nissan Altima was apparently heading south on Lake Wackena Road when the driver lost control rounding a curve.  The vehicle left the roadway and crashed into the lake.  The vehicle was submerged in about 10 – 12 feet of water.  The Wayne County Sheriff’s Dive Team was called in to recover the vehicle.  The State Highway Patrol investigated the accident, and the driver faces several charges.
