Woman rushed to the hospital after car plunges into water at Cape Cod beach



WEST YARMOUTH, Mass. – A driver was pulled from the water late Monday night as the vehicle she was driving plunged into the ocean at Bayview Street Beach.

According to police, just after 10:30 p.m., Yarmouth Police and Fire officials responded to the beach located at a dead-end road after reports of a vehicle crashing and ending up about 100 feet out into the water.
