Bethlehem police fished a car from the Lehigh River this weekend after the driver apparently crashed through a guardrail.

The car was seen floating in the icy river Saturday morning.

According to the towing company at the scene, a woman was driving on Riverside Drive when her car went off the road.


She apparently crashed through a guardrail and down an embankment into the water.

No one was hurt, but the car drifted down the river before Fast Lane Towing was called in to help pull it out.
