According to the Beaver Lake Fire Department, a stuck throttle is to blame for submerging a car into Beaver Lake overnight.

The Beaver Lake & Hickory Creek Fire Departments, along with the Benton County Sheriff’s Office and its Dive Team responded to the submerged car at the Beaver Shores boat launch point on Lakeshore drive.

First responders with the BLFD say there was only one person in the vehicle at the time it was submerged, and he was able to swim to shore.
