The fire department says this is the third time a car has crashed into the pond in front of a Westmont apartment complex.
A car lost control on 59th Street around 6 p.m. in Westmont and plunged into a pond in front of the Twin Lake Towers Apartment complex. "There was a woman inside. We got her out, and she's all right," said Westmont Deputy Fire Chief Jim Connolly. "She's refusing medical treatment and will probably be heading home soon." Connolly said that this is the third time he can remember that a car has fallen into this particular pond. With the first snowfall of the season, police are urging motorists to slow down and use caution on the roads.
