COLUMBUS, OH (WTVN)-- A woman was taken to the hospital early Friday afternoon, after her vehicle crashed into Griggs Reservoir.

Witnesses and firefighters say the vehicle left the roadway near the corner of Riverside Drive and Fishinger Road around 11:30AM. 

Joe Harp frequently rides his bike in the area, and told ABC-6 he wasn't sure if there was something wrong at first. "I didn't know if they were coming down to fish, which they can't bring a car down here, or whether somebody didn't set the brake. It was going pretty fast, I bet it was going 15 miles an hour", Harp said.

Harp called 9-1-1, and tried to help get the woman out of the vehicle. The woman was rescued by firefighters, and taken to Riverside hospital for treatment.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
