Police say a driver was not at fault when her car rolled across the street and into a creek Monday.

Police were called about 3:45 p.m. Monday on a report of a car in Cedar Creek at Veterans Park, in Cedar Springs.

According to Officer Chad Potts, a car rolled backwards out of a driveway, across Oak Street, through Veterans Park, and into Cedar Creek.

Police said the driver engaged the emergency brake after pulling into the driveway and going into the house, but it may have had a malfunction. No one was in the car when it rolled, and no one was at the park, so no one was injured. The car rolled between a tree and a light pole in the park before coming to rest in the creek. The car sustained some damage to the driver side when it scraped against the pole, and the park grounds sustained some damage when the car was pulled out of the creek by the towing company. The dirt in the park was replaced.

Officer Potts said that once they reset the fuel gauge, the car started right back up.

The driver was not cited.
