— Crews have rescued a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent after his vehicle went into the St. Clair River.

WDIV-TV and The Times Herald of Port Huron report the agent was rescued by Clay Township Fire Department Wednesday morning, treated at a local hospital and released. Authorities say he had been responding to a call about someone who didn't stop at the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit and was reportedly headed to Port Huron.

A resident on Walpole Island heard cries for help and called 911.

The St. Clair County Sheriff's Dive Team has been working to recover the vehicle.

It wasn't immediately clear how or why the vehicle entered the river.
