Car in water near Navy Yard

Update 4:30pm: Emergency officials have cleared the scene, an official said; Metropolitan Police Department Harbor Patrol will return with sonar equipment to locate and remove the SUV.

Original post: An SUV plunged into the Anacostia River between the South Capitol Street bridge and Navy Yard this afternoon, prompting rescue crews which included a fireboat, an emergency and fire official said. One adult female was removed from the vehicle and is being evaluated by EMS. There were no other occupants reported, but divers are entering the water to be sure.

I'll second the first sentence of montana123's comment. I'd love to see an update about how this happened if that information is released to the media.
