PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say three people have been rescued after a vehicle went into a canal in Phoenix.

City fire department crews were called to the area around 4 a.m. Sunday about a water rescue.

They arrived to find a car overturned in the shallow water.

Authorities say three people were trapped inside car, but crews were able to use a 14-foot ladder to get the people out of the water.

They were evaluated by paramedics and didn't need to be transported to a hospital.

Authorities say the cause of the crash is under investigation.
