FORT MYERS, Fla.- A driver is forced to swim to safety-- after losing control on Interstate-75 near Palm Beach Boulevard.

Investigators tell us the driver plowed through a chain link fence and then crashed into a ditch filled with water. The tail lights of the Honda Civic could be seen right above the water line.  

There's no word if the driver was hurt... or what caused the crash.
