NORWALK, Conn. (WTNH) — Police are investigating after a car drove off of the Merritt Parkway into the Norwalk River early Saturday morning in Norwalk.

Firefighters responded to the call at 4:28 a.m., assisted by hospital paramedics and State Police where they found a Hyundai sedan on its side in a foot of water between the parkway Exit 40A ramp and the 1 Glover Avenue Condos.

An unidentified 20-year-old woman walked up to firefighters and told them she was the occupant in the car, and she was brought to Norwalk Hospital for evaluation.

State Police worked to remove the car from the river.
