BERKELEY -- An elderly man drove his van into the bay at the Berkeley Marina early Friday, authorities said.
The man was not hurt and was able to climb out of the van before emergency crews arrived, said Berkeley Fire Department Deputy Chief Avery Webb. The man was leaving the parking lot on Sewall Drive near HS Lordships restaurant at 12:03 a.m. when he somehow ended up in the water, authorities said.
A tow truck pulled the van, which was partially submerged, out of the water.
