A 2017 Hyundai Elantra met a watery end Monday when it drifted into the Charles River in Cambridge, according to police.
Two cars crashed at the base of the River Street bridge just before 1 a.m. Monday. As the Hyundai began to smoke, the driver jumped out of the vehicle—without putting on the brake.
“It kind of drove itself into the river,” state police spokesman David Procopio said.
The Cambridge Fire Department and divers pulled the car out around 5 a.m. with the help of a tow truck, according to the department’s official Twitter page.
