The man, whose name has not yet been released, was driving a three-wheeled "sand trap" maintenance vehicle near the 3900 block of Ridglea Country Club Drive when it went off an embankment at about 9 a.m.

The maintenance vehicle, police said, resembles a riding lawn mower.

According to Fort Worth police, one of the man's co-workers spotted the man face down in the water and jumped in to rescue him.

Firefighters arrived a short time later and removed the man from the creekbed and began treating his injuries. He was eventually flown by CareFlite to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth where he is believed to be in serious condition.
