No one was injured this morning when an unoccupied vehicle rolled into the water near the 17th Avenue boat ramp.

The incident was reported to police around 8:56 a.m.

Officer Matt Maracle said a woman got out of the vehicle to talk with a friend at the boat ramp but forgot to put the vehicle into park. Maracle said the 2010 Silver Buick SUV rolled forward about 10 feet before it went into the water…and floated out about 60 feet.

Firefighters from the Pensacola Fire Department arrived on scene with a boat and assisted AA Towing with hooking a cable to the vehicle to pull it back to shore.

Maracle said the woman, who lives in Gulf Breeze, had borrowed the vehicle from a friend.
