A 24-year-old driver is in the hospital after being rescued from a pond in west suburban Downers Grove.

It's still unclear what caused the driver to plunge his car into the pond just off Butterfield Road near the Doubletree Suites Hotel.

Divers rescued the driver. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition. No one else was in the car.

Four firefighters and two police officers who helped in the rescue also got checked out at a hospital as a precaution.
