SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Dive crews have located a vehicle under the Pioneer Bridge. Rescue crews believe it may be the tow truck that went off Highway 50 and into Sacramento River last week, although it has not been confirmed as such.
According to the California High Patrol, divers located the vehicle by sonar but cannot confirm if this is the tow truck they've been looking for or if anyone is inside.
The vehicle was located about 35 feet below the river around 3:30 p.m., and crews are currently looking into how to get the vehicle out of the water, an action that might take multiple agencies like PG&E and Caltrans.
Family members had previously held a vigil for a couple they believe died after their tow truck fell into the Sacramento River. Family and friends said they have accepted that it was Shalvinesh and Roselyn Sharma's truck.
Friends and family gathered to honor a husband and wife. ABC10 is told they were killed after their tow truck crashed and plunged into the river Tuesday night. Even though authorities have not been able to recover the tow truck involved in the crash, friends and family say they've accepted that Shalvinesh and Roselyn Sharma were inside the vehicle when it fell into the river.
