SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A driver allegedly lost control of their vehicle, ending up on the St. Joseph river bank Saturday, according to a witness.
Slick roads were reported all over Michiana as Winter Storm Harper hit the area over the weekend.
On January 19, a driver allegedly lost control of their vehicle after rounding a curve on Riverside Drive, sliding down an embankment.
One witness, Mike Story, said, "We heard a big thud outside and what not and we looked out and a telephone pole looked like it broke and the light fixture came down in the road." He adds, "We came out to check it out and low and behold there was a vehicle in the river, right at the river's edge. It kind of lost control and hit the pole and went close to the river there. It could have rolled over but it didn't."
Story told ABC 57 everyone in the vehicle appeared okay but shaken up as a result of the ordeal.
Road officials confirm water builds up on the curve and can potentially lead to icy conditions.
