Teen driver ends up in canal near Kinnear

A 15-year-old girl lost control of her car shortly after 10 p.m. on Thursday and ended up sliding into the deep Wyoming Canal along Gabes Road near Kinnear. Fremont County Undersheriff Ryan Lee reports that the girl lost control of the Lincoln sedan on the washboards, causing the vehicle to slide off the roadway and into the canal. "The driver was not injured and escaped the vehicle before it was submerged," Lee said. "The vehicle remains in the canal as of this morning as it was too dangerous to attempt to pull it out of the water at night. The Irrigation District was informed and will make arrangement for removal." The girl was reportedly driving home and following her father's vehicle when the crash occurred. The investigation is continuing. #county10 #news
