    The driver of a car that crashed into a lake Tuesday afternoon reportedly was texting while driving, authorities said.

    Deputies with the Charles County Sheriff's Office were called to Waldorf, Md., about 12:25 p.m. for a report of a car that drove into a lake.

    The 25-year-old driver of the Hyundai was northbound on St. Charles Parkway near St. Thomas Drive when she drove off the roadway, struck a tree and drove about 60 feet into the lake, becoming submerged in about 5 feet of water.

    The driver was out of the car when emergency crews arrived. She was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

    The car has been removed from the lake.
