On Tuesday afternoon, a 25-year-old woman from Maryland was texting while driving.

And while she was distracted, her Hyundai went off the road, hit a tree . . . and sent her careening about 50 feet straight into a LAKE.

The car started sinking, but the woman managed to crawl out the window and swim back to shore. The car came to rest in a part of the lake that’s only about five feet deep, so it didn’t sink all the way.

The woman was taken to the hospital, but didn’t have any noticeable injuries. Charges against her are pending.
