DeKalb crews pull submerged car out of lake

Crews in DeKalb County on Thursday pulled out a car that became submerged in a lake, possibly as a result of Michael-related weather.

No one was in the car, DeKalb County Fire Rescue Department spokesman Shaun Kennedy said.

Officials learned that the silver sedan was in Buena Vista Lake on McAfee Road on Wednesday night, but made the decision not to respond until about 7 a.m. Thursday due to the stormy weather, Kennedy said.

A diver first went into the lake and determined no one was in the car, before the team pulled it out.

It’s unclear whether storms and wet roads because of Michael caused the car to go into the lake, Kennedy said.
