A car has ended up in Swansea Channel this evening.
The car crashed through a fence on the bridge at around 5:30pm.
Incredibly the female driver, believed to be aged in her 30's, managed to escape from the car as it sank and swam to shore.
She's been taken to hospital as a precaution.
One northbound lane of the Pacific Highway is closed while police investigate.
The car is at the bottom of the channel, east of the bridge.
Police are asking boat owners to be vigilant while travelling through the area.
Pedestrians are also urged to avoid using the bridge.
