Forrester Road was closed between Imler and Keystone Roads Monday.
According to the California Highway Patrol , at about 1:30 Monday morning a Honda Odyssey hit a bridge over a canal. The mini-van ended up submerged in the canal and the driver was unable to open the door to get out. Imperial County Fire Department personnel arrived on the scene and were able to get the driver out of the vehicle and to safety. The driver sustained minor injuries. The roadway was blocked by debris from the bridge guardrail and the road was closed by Imperial County Road Department until the minivan could be removed from the canal later Monday morning and the bridge could be assessed for damage and repaired. The bridge has been a target for cars and has been hit and damaged a number of times in the past few months , most recently last Wednesday.
