Two teenage sisters are okay, just cold and wet, after their car plunged into the North Marina waterway at the Port of Everett Sunday evening.

Shortly after 5:30 PM Snohomish 911 received multiple reports of a car driving off the parking area and into the water.

It happened near the end of I dock at the North Marina. It appeared the driver of the car was trying to drive through the gravel parking area west of Scuttlebutt and lost her bearings.

The car floated for a bit and the two girls who had been in the car managed to get out before the car went completely under. Bystanders assisted the sisters to safety.

Both girls were checked out by medics with the Everett Fire Department and were able to go home with their parents and did not need to go to the hospital.

The Department of Ecology has been contacted about possible fuel and oil leaking from the car and the Port of Everett will handle removal of the car from the water.
