INDIANAPOLIS — Investigators are looking for the driver of a car that ended up at the bottom of the White River on Sunday.

The car went off the road, down the bank, and into the river shortly after 5:00 Sunday evening. Indianapolis Fire Department divers were called and they found the car in about 10 feet of water, but no one was inside when they found it.

“Witnesses told firefighters that a car left the road, traveled down the embankment, went through the jersey barriers and into the water,” said IFD Battalion Chief Ria Reith. “Witnesses also stated that an adult male, believed to be the driver of the car, was seen walking away from the area of the water.”

Reith added that a woman showed up at the scene of the recovery of the car and told firefighters that the driver was her son.

She said they were unable to pull the car out of the river Sunday evening and will try again today.
