Young Driver Crashes into Reykjavík Pond

A driver in his early twenties lost control of his BMW yesterday afternoon while passing another vehicle on the bridge over Reykjavík Pond on Skothúsvegur and his car crashed into the frozen water.

Police said the man had been driving too fast for the weather conditions and believe the car flipped over at least once before landing in the pond, Fréttabladid reports.

The driver managed to escape from his damaged vehicle on his own. According to Morgunbladid, he was taken to the emergency room and only suffered minor injuries.
