SUISUN CITY (CBS SF) — A man died late Saturday night when his car rolled off the boat launch ramp near downtown Suisun City and into Suisun Slough, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

The man, who was not identified Sunday afternoon, was pulled out of the water — inside his car — about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The car went into the water there at about 9:30 p.m.

A trained fire department rescue swimmer found the car in about 10 feet of water, and tried to pull the victim from the car. He was able to open the driver-side door and grab the victim, the fire department said, but was unable to free him from the vehicle without dive equipment.

Dozens of volunteers from the Solano County Office of Emergency Services’ rescue dive team and marine patrol, the Suisun City fire department, Suisun City police and the Solano County Sheriff’s coroner’s office worked to retrieve the body and the vehicle.

Soon after emergency responders arrived at the boat ramp Saturday night, a separate call of a sinking boat about a quarter-mile from the boat ramp came in. Suisun City Fire personnel went to that scene, and rescued one person on the sinking boat.
