A car plunged into a Jamaica Bay canal early Saturday morning, sources told The Courier.

According to the FDNY, the incident happened at about 2 a.m. and after pulling the car out of the water, divers did not find a body.

It is believed that the driver either abandoned the car right before it hit the water or swam out of the car right after, authorities said.

There were police and a truck with a crane on scene to pull the car out of the bay.

The vehicle was then placed in the parking lot of Howard Beach Chiropractic, located on 160th Avenue and Cross Bay Boulevard, sources said.
