Driver jumps out of car before crashing into pond

CARMEL, Ind. - A man jumped out of his car seconds before crashing into a pond.

This happened at 2 a.m. Tuesday morning at the intersection of Haverstick and 106th Street.

Police say the driver, Andrew Combs,  was headed down Haverstick and somehow lost control before the intersection. The car jumped the curb and crashed through a metal fence before going into the water.

Combs was uninjured, but taken to St. Vincent Hospital to be checked out because of the nature o f the crash.

Crews were on scene for hours, working to get the sedan out of the pond. Only a few inches could be seen from the surface. A dive team managed to hook the car, which was pulled from the water and loaded onto a tow truck around 3:30 a.m.

Police say Combs failed the field sobriety test, and consented to a blood test.

While the results of the blood test may take several weeks, he is being given a preliminary OWI charge.

He is currently in the Hamilton County Jail.
