Car submerged in water near Kingston, Ont.

Police are at the scene of a vehicle submerged in the water west of Kingston, Ont.

OPP said that the vehicle was in the water near Bath Road and County Road 6 in Amherstview, in Loyalist Township. Police said it happened around 10 a.m. Friday.

OPP collision investigators and its underwater search and recovery unit were dispatched to the scene, along with firefighters and paramedics from Napanee and Loyalist County.

A section of the guard rail where Bath Road and County Road 6 meet has been torn away – that appears to be where the vehicle broke through.

Two emergency rescue boats could be seen in the water. Images from the scene showed the Frontenac II, a local ferry, was also nearby.

A neighbour who lives on the corner told CTV News she heard a bang and came out to see a vehicle sinking into the water. She said it was the second time in six years she had seen it happen at that intersection.

Bath Road remained closed from Speers Street to County Road 6 early Friday afternoon.
