A vehicle rolled off a launch ramp at Lake Havasu on Friday.

Around 4 p.m., deputies from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office Division of Boating Safety were dispatched to Cattail Cove in reference to a vehicle that had gone into the water. Upon arrival, it was determined that a 2007 Pontiac Sedan was completely submerged in the water off of the launch ramp. 

It was determined that the driver of the vehicle, David Stover Sr., 45 of Parker, and an 11-year-old child had pulled the vehicle up to the launch ramp. They exited the vehicle, which then rolled into the water. 

There were no injuries. The launch ramp was closed temporarily while the incident was
investigated and the vehicle was removed.
