SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities have pulled a car out of the surf on San Francisco's Ocean Beach after a woman apparently drove it into the water.

Fire officials say they arrived around 6:30 a.m. Friday to find the woman sitting in her partially submerged Lexus. Rescuers waded into the water and pulled the unidentified woman out.

Fire Capt. Jeanne Seyfer says the woman used a ramp to get onto the beach and drove about 350 feet over sand before coming to a stop in the water. Seyfer says authorities don't know why she drove there or if she was intoxicated.

She suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.

The Lexus remained in the surf for hours, as authorities waited for low tide. They removed the car around 1:45 p.m.
