BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities in southeast Iowa say a 17-year-old driver has minor injuries after crashing his car into a pond at a private golf club.

The Des Moines County Sheriff's Office says the teen was speeding early Monday in Burlington and lost control of his vehicle at a curve. The car slid sideways, entered Flint Hills Golf Course and eventually went into a pond on the eighth hole.

Authorities say the teen, the lone occupant, returned to land before his vehicle was fully submerged into the water. He was charged with operating while intoxicated and failure to maintain control of a vehicle. He was released to a parent.
