TOBERMORY, Ont. – A woman trying to navigate a foggy night in Ontario ended up driving straight into Lake Huron Thursday, according to police.

The 23-year-old Kitchener, Ontario, resident was following her car’s GPS when she somehow lost her way at the Little Tub Harbour boat launch. It was after midnight when she took the fateful turn, and suddenly felt her red Toyota Yaris filling with sub-40 degree water as it sank.

Thinking quickly, the woman managed to roll down the windows before the vehicle disappeared below the surface, and swam to shore.


Rubinstein-Gilbert said the driver was “a little embarrassed,” but generally in good spirits.

Apparently, no alcohol was involved in the incident and the driver will not be charged.
