SAN ANTONIO – Officers with the San Antonio Police Department spent part of their Saturday morning trying to figure out how an SUV ended up in the San Antonio River.

Officers were called to the part of the river that goes under Highway 281, just north of downtown near the Brackenridge Park Golf Course, before 10 a.m.

Police found a silver SUV sitting in the river submerged in the water. There was no damage to the highway above. A fence near the river suffered some damage, but it is unclear if that is a result of the accident.

No one was in the vehicle at the time it was found. Police said they believe the driver fled before officers arrived.

The biggest obstacle they had was figuring out how to get the vehicle out of the water. The vehicle has since been removed and the investigation continues.
