NEWORLEANS - An empty car was found in the lake at the Twin Spans on Wednesday morning, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Police discovered the car had been involved in a hit-and-run accident with an 18-wheeler late Tuesday night.

The driver, who was shaken up and suffered minor injuries, swam out of the water, according to the NOPD.

Police are looking for an 18-wheeler with the name 'Raynor' on the side that reportedly hit the SUV.
