PHOENIX -- A truck was pulled from a small lake near a Phoenix apartment complex late Friday night.

Police and firefighters were called to the lake near Interstate 17 and Peoria Avenue after receiving reports that a truck had crashed into the water.

The truck was recovered from the bottom of the lake, which is about 16 feet deep, using a large crane.

The driver reportedly fled the scene but was later apprehended by police, who followed his wet footprints.

He was taken to a hospital with minor injuries and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

A dive team combed the lake to make sure no one was in the water.
