Lafayette Parish deputies recovered a vehicle that crashed into Coulee Ile des Cannes last Friday.

The vehicle crashed into the waterway around 2:00 am on February 25 from Robley Drive in Lafayette Parish

"We had a vehicle lose control on Robley drive right near the parish line and the vehicle entered the water," said LPSO spokesperson John Mowell. "The occupants were able to remove themselves safely from the vehicle. The vehicle then fully submerged and we're out here recovering that today."

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

"We do this all the time. We had another one about a week ago," said Mowell. "This particular area, this exact location, we had another vehicle go off the road about a year ago. We do want to advise the public to be careful on this curve coming into the parish line on Robley Drive."
