CHARLESTON, Utah – A new vehicle accidentally rolled into Deer Creek Reservoir while the owner was taking photos of it, authorities said.

The unfortunate incident happened late Sunday night.

According to Capt. Kam Kohler with Wasatch County Search & Rescue, the individual was taking pictures of the car in order to rent or sell it.

He said the person must have bumped it into neutral when exiting the vehicle and it rolled into the water. There was no one inside when the accident happened.

“The owner of the car had gone to the ramp at the State Park boat ramp to take pictures of his car,” according to a Facebook post from Wasatch County Search & Rescue. “So when the car decided to go for a swim, the owner was out of the car.”
