The Honda Civic crash landed in the Hickory Creek.
"Someone came by just as he was getting out of the creek, called me on the cell phone, and that's when I came out," Watt said. "He's incredibly lucky. The car landed right-side up. Had it landed upside down, this would have been a different situation."
The 16-year-old was not injured in the accident.
Watt said his son was wearing a seat at the time of the crash.
"The conditions on this road were incredibly icy," Watt added. "Salt trucks hadn't been out. The plows hadn't been out."
