A city man suffered minor injuries Saturday after police say he drove his van into
a lake in Central Park.
It happened just before 12:30 p.m. at the Harlem Meer near 110th Street.
Investigators say the man, who is said to be in his 20s, escaped before help arrived.
Witnesses at the scene tell NY1 they believe the man intentionally drove the van into the lake.
"He said he's tired of his father, the way he treats him and what not. I guess that was his revenge," said one witness.
Both the driver and a city firefighter who responded to the scene were taken to nearby
hospitals with minor injuries.
Police say the incident does not appear criminal.
