The Millstadt and Columbia fire departments assisted Millstadt EMS and the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department in responding about 6:45 p.m. Sunday to a car in an icy pond in the area of 5835 Bohleysville Road southeast of Columbia.

Responders found a 2010 Mazda 6 that had been traveling southbound, left the roadway, crossed through a field, went into a pond and was partially submerged. The driver, Timothy S. Peterson, 52, of St. Louis, was the only occupant of the car and was not injured.

There was no indication of driver impairment, police said, and speed appeared to have been a factor in the crash.
