MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Fire Department confirms an elderly woman ended up plunging her car into Lincoln Creek, but somehow, she got away without a scratch.
This happened around 9:00 p.m. tonight near the corner of North 63rd Street and West Villard Avenue.
Officials say the woman, who was trying to drive into her garage, mistook the brake for the gas pedal and that caused her car to go in reverse and fall more than 30 feet into the water.
She got herself out, but at last report, the vehicle was still in the water.
