MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- Road conditions caused a driver to lose control of his car and end up in Lake Michigan, police say.

The incident happened in the 800 block of Maritime Drive in Manitowoc just after 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, a 50-year-old Manitowoc man, claimed a minor injury. The man went to the hospital on his own.

Due to weather conditions, the car was not immediately removed from the lake. The police department is working with other agencies to remove the car in a timely manner.
