A man was discovered dead inside of a car that drove off into the Mississippi River.
His body was found in the driver’s seat with no signs of foul play, while a witness says the car drove into the river at the Red Star boat ramp.
The crash happened Monday evening, but a search for the vehicle and any occupants was postponed until yesterday due to heavy fog and dangerous river conditions.
Crews began searching around 9:30 yesterday morning and found the car around 11 o’clock.
The Dive Team with the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Water Division helped to pull the car from the river.
