SARASOTA, Fla. - An elderly driver on Tamiami Trail Tuesday lost control of her car and drove into Hudson Bayou, according to Sarasota Police.

Police say witnesses claim the driver was swerving between lanes before driving through bushes and into the bayou near Sarasota High School around 12:30pm.

The car was not submerged and the driver was not seriously injured, but was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

One southbound lane of Tamiami Trail was closed while crews worked to remove the car, but have since reopened.
