PORT ORANGE, Fla. – A man who was upset that his wife wanted a divorce intentionally crashed their truck into a Port Orange lake Wednesday morning, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the couple was in their vehicle around 2 a.m. when the husband crashed on Reed Canal Road.
