Driver injured after car crashes into Otonabee River in Peterborough
One man was taken to hospital after his vehicle ended up in the Otonabee River in Peterborough tonight.

The vehicle reportedly ended up on its roof, fully submerged and has since floated several hundred feet from where it went into the water.
