Boston Police are continuing to investigate an incident early Sunday in which a car wound up in Boston Harbor mud at the end of Sumner and Marginal streets in East Boston.
The driver and two women, both sitting in the back seat, were taken to Mass. General with non-life-threatening injuries, a police spokesman said this morning, adding no charges have yet been filed.
According to a police report, the driver told police he went straight rather than turning where Sumner and Marginal meet around 2:30 a.m., did not realize there was a fence there and so drove his red Camry through the fence and into the harbor.
Boston EMS Incidents reports that, fortunately for the three occupants, it was low tide at the time, so the car wound up stuck in mud, rather than sinking under water.
