LONDONDERRY - A teenager was seriously hurt tonight after driving his car off Hall Road and into a marsh in Londonderry.
The car flipped over and became submerged with the teen inside.
An off-duty firefighter was first on scene but was unable to free the driver due to the water temperature. Only the car's tires were visible when rescue crews arrived on scene.
It took crews about 20 minutes before they were finally able to get the teen out of the Buick.
A dive team was called in from Nashua to assist in a search to determine if there were any passengers, as a precaution. Officials said they had not located any others in the car or the water during their search.
Officials said rescues in areas like this can be very difficult.
"It's very unpredictable," said Chief Darren O'Brien of the Londonderry Fire Dept. "You have an area about twenty-five feet wide that you can walk in knee-deep from the shore and then all of a sudden it just drops off to over your head."
The teen was taken to Elliott Hospital in Manchester and was listed in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, according to Londonderry Police.
Investigators were continuing to reconstruct the scene to determine what led to the crash late Monday.
