Benton County Sheriff's over the weekend, discovered the driver of this SUV was not impaired in any way, probably embarrassed about how he ended up in the water.

At this time, as of Monday, authorities still don't fully know, but early Monday they got this call about this Explorer in an irrigation canal near West Richland.

The driver, an unnamed 57-year-old man, initially told Deputies it was stolen, then admitted he was driving. He was not jailed, but will still have have a court appearance to explain how his rig ended up water logged. It had ended up in the water at least a day earlier.

No doubt it's probably totaled, because it sat in the water for hours on end. Plus, the costs of having to get it cabled out of the ditch.

We can't wait to hear what took place. At least he was not injured in the mishap.
