FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JUNE 11, 2014 –

Four juveniles got away with minor injuries after the car they were in went into a pond near Southport Parkway and Marshall Road. The accident call came in at 1:18 p.m. on Friday to local police.

One officer told a reporter that the four were found walking away from the accident .

The Ford Crown Victoria may have been travelling at speed, said an officer, when it left the roadway. The car lost its windshield and bumper — and took out two Italian cypress trees — on its way into the water.

Parents were contacted to pick up the kids at the scene. One of the youths had apparently ‘borrowed’ the rental car from her mother.
