Video: Woman crashes into Patchogue Bay, saved by good Samaritan


Late Tuesday night an 18-year-old accidentally drove a Subaru Outback off of Mascot Dock into the Patchogue Bay and was quickly saved by a good Samaritan.

According to Suffolk County police, the driver mistakenly hit the gas pedal instead of her brakes, causing the plunge into the water about 10:10 p.m.

A 17-year-old witness saw the crash and jumped into the bay to help bring the driver safely back to the dock.

Both teenagers were unharmed and the car was pulled from the bay via a heavy duty wrecker, police said.
