SUV veers off Highway 101, lands in Bay near Candlestick Park

Authorities are searching for a driver who caught another ride after his SUV veered off State Highway 101 and landed in San Francisco Bay near Candlestick Park this morning. 

The black Mazda SUV was headed northbound on the freeway when it went off the road and into the water about 9:30 a.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Vu Williams said.

The driver then got out of the SUV, flagged down a car and jumped in, authorities said.

There were no passengers in the SUV, which was left half-submerged in the water, Williams said.

A detailed description of the driver was not available.
