PHOENIX - A driver reportedly suffered minor injuries when he crashed his car then fell into an open hole overnight.
Officials say the driver was impaired when he crashed into a small retention basin near 40th Street and Baseline Road around 2 a.m.
The alleged drunk driver apparently got out of his vehicle and fell into a large open manhole.
He was rescued by a fire department technical rescue team and had only minor injuries, according to a battalion chief on scene.
Police did take the man into custody and are continuing their investigation.
