Truck pulled from river near Sergeant Bluff

SERGEANT BLUFF, Iowa (AP) — A truck spotted in the Missouri River southwest of Sergeant Bluff has been removed from the water.

The Sioux City Journal says (http://bit.ly/1eo8ypW ) the truck was pulled out Tuesday after an Iowa Natural Resources Department crew saw the truck roof Monday afternoon.

Lt. Tony Wingert with the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office says the truck was submerged near a boat ramp at Weedland Access Area off 235th Street. A dive team was called in to help a towing company hook up to the truck for removal.

Officials still don’t know when the truck went into the water. The car’s registration plates had been removed, but officials located the vehicle identification number and are trying to track down the owner.

There were no signs of foul play in the car.
