ROCK HILL --
A disc golf participant apparently left his vehicle in drive when he stopped to take pictures at Winthrop Lake this morning – and discovered that after his SUV rolled into the lake.
Just after 8 a.m., Winthrop police responded to a report of a vehicle in Winthrop Lake, according to an incident report.
Officers saw a blue Ford Explorer in the water about 30 feet from the shoreline, completely submerged up to the hood line and tail lights.
The Wisconsin man, 29, is in Rock Hill participating in a disc golf tournament. He told police he parked beside the roadway and walked to the lake shore to take pictures.
He said a few minutes later he and his passenger heard a loud splash as the SUV rolled into the lake. No one was inside the vehicle, and no injuries were reported.
After pulling the vehicle from the lake, officials discovered the transmission was positioned in drive, the report states.
Police found a bag of marijuana inside the SUV and charged another Wisconsin man with simple possession, said Winthrop spokeswoman Judy Longshaw.
