A vehicle with two occupants drove into the water in the River Walk area on Sunday evening, according to the Flower Mound Police Department.

The accident was reported at 7:37 p.m. in the 4400 block of Riverside Drive, said Capt. Shane Jennings, FMPD spokesman. Witnesses reported the vehicle apparently accelerated for an unknown reason as it headed toward the water.

The driver, an adult male, and the passenger, a juvenile female, were both pulled from the vehicle by first responders before it sunk, Jennings said. The passenger has no apparent injuries, but the driver was treated and transported to the hospital in unknown condition. A police officer received minor injuries when he jumped in and broke the window to get the driver out.

The vehicle became fully submerged after the occupants were rescued, and the accident is under investigation, Jennings said. More information is expected to be released Monday morning.

This is the second time that a vehicle has been driven into the water in the River Walk in about two weeks.

    The father seemed to be having a seizure. He was still shaking with his eyes closed when his daughter opened the door, as soon as the car went into the water, and she swam out crying and screaming saying her dad was dead. A lady and I unsuccessfully tried to get him (I believe his name was Daniel) out of the car but thankfully, a police officer got there fairly quickly and he was able to get the man out of the white vehicle.

    We have our seniors, mothers, fathers, little kids, brothers and sisters, and our friends and families in this community. We really love them. Please show off your stupid driving skills somewhere else.

    This was a white pickup. The flower mound cameras recorded everything. We prefer not to share more at this time. But if this happens again, we take more serious actions, period.

    THIS IS ALSO FOR PARENTS WITH YOUNG DRIVERS IN THEIR FAMILY! PLEASE TEACH YOUR KIDS TO DRIVE RESPECTFULLY! the shame is on the parents of the white male driver of black Jaguar 19 years old from Lake Dallas, who did the same shit here last two weeks.

    Flower Mound is a beautiful town. Let’s keep it this way!
