DORAL, Fla. – A man was taken to a hospital after being pulled from a car found in a canal Tuesday morning in Doral.

The car went into the water next to Florida’s Turnpike near Northwest 74th Street.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the victim was pulled from the canal and taken to a nearby hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

A view from Sky 10 showed the car was submerged.

It was not immediately known how the car ended up in the water.

A firefighter at the scene told Local 10 News the initial 911 call came about 6 a.m. from the driver’s On-Star system, which somehow detected the crash. By the time divers found the car and got to the man, he showed “no signs of life.”

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue divers were searching the water to make sure nobody else was inside.

The northbound on-ramp to the turnpike was closed at Northwest 74th Street during the crash investigation.
