CORNWALL, Ontario – An out-of-control Cadillac near Morrisburg ended up in the St. Lawrence River after rocketing off of Lakeshore Drive Wednesday night.

Police said Friday the vehicle, driven by a 21-year-old, hit a guardrail and a dock before submerging itself in the river.

The driver left the scene of the accident, but was located by police later.

Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the accident.

OPP Const. Joel Doiron said emergency officials were scouring the river, looking for the driver, before he was located by police Thursday afternoon.

“At that point we were missing a driver,” he said.
