CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An SUV was recovered from the Red River on Monday afternoon.
Several crews from Clarksville and Montgomery County joined together with a towing and trucking company to recover the vehicle that crashed into the river early Sunday morning.
Clarksville police said a sergeant driving on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard around 2:30 a.m. Sunday found downed power lines and vehicle debris near the side of the bridge. Hours later, a Clarksville Fire Rescue boat used sonar to confirm there was a vehicle in the river.
Crews had been coordinating a plan to retrieve the car since Sunday, but plans were on hold until the weather conditions improved.
On Monday afternoon, police said crews removed a Chevrolet Suburban. It was unoccupied when search searched it and the owners have been contacted. On Tuesday, crews returned to the water to search for a missing person they believed was driving the vehicle.
