The Colorado State Patrol is crediting the efforts of two men who saved a suspected drunk driver from drowning. Christopher Lyons, who was in Fort Collins to enroll his son in college, and Martin Murphy, a local business owner, quickly acted after witnessing a car crash into the Lake Canal Ditch.
The driver of the vehicle, Bradley Hill, had driven onto the shoulder along the canal and then into the water around 2:00 pm Wednesday. Lyons and Murphy managed to extract him from the submerged, over-turned car.
Hill was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. He has been charged with driving under the influence in Colorado and reckless driving.
