At about 3 p.m. this afternoon, onlookers reported seeing a man drive his car into the C&O Canal near 33rd and Water St. According to some sources, the man was drunk. He remained in his car until emergency crews arrived on the scene and was transported to Georgetown University Hospital at about 3:30 p.m.

The car landed in a muddy area of the canal that doesn’t have standing water.
