RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- One person was injured after driving into a pond on Monday evening.

The Racine Fire Department was dispatched to the pond near 21st and Green Bay Road for a report of a vehicle in the water.

The first call came in at 7:48 p.m. and the first diver made it into the water at 8:02 p.m.

The victim was extricated from the car after 7 minutes and taken to a local hospital. There is currently no word on their condition. 

According to the Batallion Chief, there were reports of the vehicle driving erratically over a hill into the pond. 

A firefighter was in the area, saw what happened and entered the water right away to see if he could get the victim out of the car. 

"There was a civilian on scene who happened to be one of our firefighters who was riding by. He was trying to see if he could maybe get the party out before the truck ended up in the water," Batallion Chief Willie Hargrove said. 

CBS 58 News has a crew on scene and will continue to bring you updates as they become available.
