Members of the Columbia Basin Dive Rescue team assist in pulling a car from the Columbia River Wednesday at the east boat ramp at Columbia Park in Kennewick.
The driver of the car had stopped to take pictures at the boat ramp when he hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. He was not in the car at the time it went into the water. He left the scene to call 911 and when he returned he was given a field sobriety test by Kennewick police and arrested for DUI.
