A man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries Wednesday night after driving his car into the Fox River in Fox River Grove.
Fox River Grove Fire Chief Bob Kreher said the fire department was called at 11:39 p.m. to Lincoln Avenue and North River Road.
The car was in the middle of the river when first responders arrived, Kreher said.
Only the driver of the car was in the vehicle at the time of the incident, he said. A kayaker who was out on the Fox River assisted with getting the driver to shore.
He said first responders were out at the scene for several hours trying to locate the car and get it removed from the river.
“We weren't able to remove it until early this morning,” Kreher said.
