Charges Filed in Car Plunge Into Irondequoit Bay

The man who police say was behind the wheel of a car that drove into Irondequoit Bay over the weekend, is now facing charges.

Webster Police say they have charged 36-year-old Owen Hedges with DWI and speed in zone. Authorities say Hedges was coming from the Webster side of Bay Road when he apparently drove through the barricade at the approach to the bay outlet bridge -- and into the water.

As the car started to sink, Hedges and his passenger were able to get out and swim to shore where some people helped pull them out of the water.
