The DoorDash delivery person's vehicle was being driven on a dirt road when it somehow ended up in a body of water in Middleton, Massachusetts, authorities said
A Massachusetts DoorDash driver likely didn’t expect that their Dunkin' delivery run would end in a swamp.
According to a news release, the Middleton Police Department said that they received a call late Friday morning from a driver whose vehicle was in a body of water in the Middleton woods. The driver told them that they exited the vehicle, walked out of the woods and went to a nearby home on Kenney Road, which is also located in Middleton.
Upon arriving at the scene, authorities learned from the caller that they were a DoorDash driver following GPS instructions to an address in Middleton to deliver Dunkin'. The driver had the DoorDash order with them when they made contact.

According to the “panicked” motorist, the vehicle was being driven on a dirt road during the delivery run when it somehow ended up in a body of water.
Middleton Police said that a search resulted in the vehicle being located down a dirt path behind 18 Kenney Road. The vehicle was found still running and partially submerged in the water.
“The vehicle was towed from the scene and there did not appear to be any leakage from the vehicle into the body of water,” said police.
Authorities noted that the driver was transported to Beverly Hospital upon their request. The owner of the property where the vehicle was located arrived after they were notified about the incident.
Resident Jim Delaney told WCVB: "We go, 'There's a lady in the swamp behind my house.' I assume — I got a neighbor down around the bend — that she was going there, and she was guessing away, but once she got down to this point, you think she would've turned around."
Middleton Police said that the DoorDash driver will be charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle, per NBC, adding that a request for immediate threat license suspension was also filed with the state's Registry of Motor Vehicles.
PEOPLE reached out to the Middleton Police Department for additional information about the incident and the condition of the driver, but they did not immediately respond for comment.
