Rescue crews pulled a vehicle out of a canal this morning and found no one inside.
It happened on Spring Creek Road, that's outside of Aurora in Beaufort County.
Authorities say the car was stolen last night from Vanceboro and they believe the accident happened sometime overnight. A passing driver spotted the skid marks and noticed the car in the canal this morning and called 911.
Both rear doors of the light blue Honda Accord were open, and the keys out of the ignition when the vehicle was pulled from the canal around 10:25 a.m.
Authorities believe whoever was driving the car was able to get out of it and run away. Just to be sure, the Sidney Dive Team checked the canal but found nothing.
Troopers estimate the car was going around 80 miles per hour when it ran off the right side of the road, the driver over-corrected and then crossed both lanes and landed in the canal.
