      Auto accident sends car plunging into Edinburg canal

      Authorities are looking for the driver of a car that hit a light pole and plunged into a northwest Edinburg canal.

      It all happened off Schunior and Depot Roads just after 9:30 a.m. Friday.

      Both firefighters and police have been called to the scene.

      Authorities found a white, four-door Chrysler partially submerged in the canal.

      Paramedics rushed a woman found walking away from the car to a local hospital for treatment.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that the driver has not been found.

      Police believe he lost control of the car, hit a light pole and plunged the car into the canal.
