Fire Crews Pull Two People From Car in Pond

Plano Texas Press ReleasePlano firefighters pulled two people from a car that was driven into a pond in

central Plano today.

Crews were called to the 3700 block of Country Place Drive at 9:41 am after a

four-door sedan left the roadway and drove into a pond approximately 30 feet from

the road. Callers told the 911 operators that there were two people in the car and that

the vehicle was nose-down in the water and sinking. Plano’s Truck 4 arrived at the

scene in three minutes and firefighters entered the water and extricated the

occupants from the car quickly.

The two occupants of the car were transported to Medical City Plano. Their

injuries were not life threatening.

Plano’s Truck 4 is part of the department’s Special Rescue Team and the

personnel are trained in water rescue but, fortunately, they were also the closest fire

truck to the scene. The pond sits between the two walking trails that make up a part

of Plano’s Chisholm Trail, a popular walking and biking trail in the middle of the city.

No other people were injured and it is unknown at this time why the vehicle left the

road and entered the pond.
