Concordia Univ. official said to be OK after car goes over cliff in Mequon - TODAY'S TMJ4:
MEQUON - The head of Concordia University security was said to be OK after his car went over a cliff and partially went into the shore of Lake Michigan Monday morning, according to TODAY'S TMJ4's Todd Hicks.
Hicks reports that Mario Valdes was driving a new car at the campus on Monday when his accelerator became stuck.
Valdes' car then went over a cliff, traveled 200-300 feet, struck an embankment, then went over rocks before hitting the shore.
Chopper 4 shows the car's edge having gone in Lake Michigan on an embankment along the lakeshore. It appeared as if the car was not completely submerged.
The university said in a statement that Valdes was able to walk away from his car under his own power.
He not seriously injured, but was being checked out at a hospital as a precaution.
