WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas park ranger says two fishermen saved a man who accidentally drove into the Cheney Reservoir in south-central Kansas.

Cheney State Park ranger Mike Satterlee tells KWCH-TV the accident occurred Saturday night. He says the driver “got turned around” and drove down a boat ramp into the water.

Three passengers escaped but the driver couldn’t get out. Satterlee says two fishermen rescued the man by breaking a window.

First responders treated the driver and three passengers for minor cuts and bruises. It’s unclear if they were hospitalized. Authorities haven’t released their names.

Satterlee says this is the second time a car has accidentally driven into the water at that location this year.
