District of Columbia police rescued a driver standing on the hood of a car Thursday morning after it was spotted in the middle of the Tidal Basin.
Crews arrived on the scene on East Basin Drive at around 2 a.m. to find the driver balancing on the car in the water.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and authorities reported no injuries.
The Tidal Basin, a man-made reservoir between the Potomac River and Washington Channel, is 10 feet deep. It was unclear if the car was retrieved from the basin.
