Car Goes Down Embankment, Nears River

Westport firefighters rescued the driver of a car that nearly ended up in the Saugatuck River on Thursday afternoon.

At about 2:41 p.m., firefighters and police responded to a call of a car down an embankment on Ford Road, leading to the river, with the driver inside, Assistant Chief Andrew Kingsbury said.

The driver, who remained inside as emergency personnel arrived, complained of dizziness and a pre-existing medical condition. Westport EMS was called to the scene as firefighters safely removed the driver and administered care.

Fire crews blocked a small oil leak until the car could be removed, and the state Department of Environmental Protection was notified. The road was cleared by 3:41 p.m.
