A man and his car were pulled out of the Cape Cod Canal Tuesday morning.

Bourne Police say that at 10:25 a.m. officers were dispatched to the Cape Cod Canal near Perry Ave. over a report of a vehicle in the water.

They arrived on scene to find a man on the rip rap at the edge of the Canal and a vehicle, later identifed as a 2006 Ford Focus, that was fully submerged.

The driver, identified only as a Bourne resident, was taken to an area hospital for evaluation of what appeared to be minor injuries and the car was later recovered from the water.

Police say that, although the incident remains under investigation, officers determined that the male driver intentionally drove up a pedestrian walkway that was formerly the base of the original Cape Cod Canal drawbridge.

The car travelled went through a fence at the end of the scenic overlook and came to a rest in the Canal.

Police say assistance was provided by the Bourne Fire Department, Barnstable County Technical Rescue Dive Team, United States Army Corps, United States Coast Guard, Wareham Harbormaster, Bourne Department of Natural Resources, Massachusetts State Police, Department of Environmental Protection, Eversource Energy, Bobs Trucking, and Big Wheels.
