Crews pull submerged car from Dayton lake; no one found in water

A dive team was called Monday night to a car reported submerged in a lake under U.S. 35 in Dayton.

A passerby called 911 around 7:10 p.m. after spotting the silver car with its windshield wipers working in the water off Lakeside Drive and Lakeview Avenue near South Gettysburg Avenue, according to the Montgomery County Regional Dispatch Center.

No one reported seeing the car go into the water, or knew how long it had been in the water before it was spotted, a dispatch supervisor said.

The Dayton Fire Department, a dive team from Wright Patterson Air Force Base and Box 21 Rescue Squad, a volunteer rescue unit, responded to the scene.

The dive team was out of the water by 9:18 p.m., and by 9:27 p.m. the vehicle was recovered and no one reported found in the water, according to the dispatch center.
