TOWN OF HUSTISFORD, Wis. (WMTV) - The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is investigating Wednesday how an unoccupied vehicle ended up submerged in the Rock River.

The sheriff’s office report stated that they received a call around 2:55 p.m. from people who were swimming in the Rock River off of the bridge on Elmwood Road in the Town of Hustisford. The callers told dispatchers that there was a vehicle in the river.

The Hustisford Fire Department deployed a watercraft in the river, confirming the vehicle in the water.

The Beaver Dam Fire Department Dive Team was then called to verify that the car was unoccupied, which it was. Advanced Towing was able to pull the car, a BMW 323, from the river.
