A woman accidentally drove her car into Clear Lake on Thursday afternoon. Authorities say the woman went through an area where a dock was being worked on, and drove off the dock into about eight feet of water. She swam to shore, where she was helped by some workers. She was uninjured.

A Harris County Sheriff's Office dive team was called, and they were able to hook the vehicle to a tow truck, in order to pull the vehicle out of the water.

The woman hasn't received any kind of ticket and authorities said it's still unclear why the woman drove off the dock.
