An 18-year-old was rescued after his car went down a ravine into the Harpeth River on Monday morning, and troopers say he will face charges.
Officials say Harrison Enkema of Franklin was driving a 1999 Acura southbound on Cotton Lane when he left the roadway on the right side, over-corrected and then left the roadway on the left side. That's when the vehicle went into the air and the roof hit a tree, suspending it over the river.
It took rescue crews several hours to free Enkema from the vehicle.
Enkema was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with injuries. There is no word on his condition.
Officials called a medical helicopter to the scene, but crew members were not able to land due to fog in the area. A rescue boat was called to assist.
Troopers say they plan to charge Enkema with DUI and reckless driving.
