A submerged car was discovered by Park Rangers at Skipper’s Point around 7:40 a.m. and 20 minutes later police received a call about a man with a gash on his head staggering along the state route near the reservoir.
Authorities made contact with the man, who said he crashed the vehicle into the water. He said no one else was in the car, except for his dog.
The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office activated a dive team to assess the crash and determine if anyone else was inside. Rescuers believe the dog was able to escape.
Recovery efforts are ongoing.
