Coming to a watery stop

-A A +A

A Ford Explorer was almost fully submerged in Watts Bar Lake Friday afternoon along Winton Chapel Road near Rockwood.

Authorities said the SUV plummeted into the water when the female driver, whose name was unavailable at press time, swerved to avoid hitting a deer on the roadway.

The driver was taken to University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment.
