A driver went off the road and landed in a pond in Brampton early Friday (Nov. 25) morning.

Fire crews from Brampton and Caledon responded to a water rescue off Highway 410 Friday morning. The car went off the northbound lanes of Highway 410 at Mayfield Road and landed in a pond, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services and OPP said in tweets around 4 a.m.

Reports indicate no one was in the vehicle and it was initially unclear what happened to the driver or any occupants.

OPP asked drivers to avoid the area. Highway 410 northbound was closed between Mayfield Road and Highway 10. But it reopened around 5:30 a.m.

Update: Brampton Fire and Emergency Services say their water rescue team along with Caledon Fire responded to a report of a car in a retention pond on Highway 410 northbound, north of Kennedy.

Upon arrival, the crews found a car half submerged with no one in the vehicle.

“The water rescue team searched the pond and area around the car and an Ontario Provincial Police K9 dog searched the surrounding area,” a Brampton Fire spokeperson tells insauga.com. “There were no injuries and the driver was located safely at home. Tow trucks removed the car from the water.”
