A Harbor Police Department dive team was working to retrieve a submerged vehicle that crashed into the San Diego Bay Monday evening in Chula Vista.

The vehicle was reportedly involved in a collision before it went into the water just after 9 p.m. near Sandpiper Way and Marina Parkway.

Two passengers were able to get out of the car safely before police arrived, according to the HPD. One was taken to a nearby hospital, and the other was given a field sobriety test and then handcuffed.

A HPD dive team was working with a local tow truck company to come up with a plan to get the vehicle back on land.
