Amazingly the man survived the initial crash uninjured, but broke some ribs and punctured a lung while escaping his car and swimming to the surface.
After making it to dry land, he was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital. Emergency crews were then called out to pull his vehicle from the river.
Local police claim the driver passed underneath a security barrier in order to make the jump.
He's lucky he wasn't hurt more.
