Hills man rescued from Clinton River

A driver was rescued from the chilly Clinton River early Thursday morning after a car skidded off the road.

Rochester Hills Fire Chief Ron Crowell said that shortly after midnight, his department and Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report that  a car had skidded into the river with a Rochester Hills man inside.

Fire crews using specialist suits to protect them from the frigid water entered the river and were able to safely rescue the man through the back window and bring him to shore. The man was transported to Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital for possible hypothermia.
