(AP) A woman is safe after losing control of her car and accidentally driving into the waters of the Oakland Estuary. But on the upside, she saved her morning coffee.
Authorities say the car went into the water a little after 6 a.m. Thursday after its 22-year-old driver apparently lost control of her car while reaching for a cell phone.
After the car became lodged in stilts under a home on the water, the driver was able to get out of the car and make it back to shore.
Onlookers say she came ashore still cradling her coffee cup.
