Driver turns car into submarine

07/15/13 - Aurora, CO: According to park witnesses the unknown driver of this car decided to intentionally drive his car numerous times into a flooded retention pond at Utah Park in the water left behind by today's monsoonal summer afternoon rain storm.  The witnesses also stated to police that after multiple passes in the pond, the vehicle responded to its driver by finally stalling in the waist-deep water (big surprise!).  The driver then reportedly waded out of the vehicle and disappeared.  As of this afternoon the driver was still AWOL.  If this is your car, good luck explaining this to you insurance agent!
