NMB officials describe scene of vehicle submerged near marina
Multiple agencies worked to remove a vehicle submerged underwater near a North Myrtle Beach marina Wednesday morning following an overnight crash, authorities said.
No one was in the vehicle, but a dive team was at the scene to check the area at Anchor Marina on Little River Neck Road.
Pat Dowling with the city of North Myrtle Beach said crews responded after an employee reported the fence was damaged.
“Sometime during the night and early morning hours, a car ran off the road into the water,” Dowling said.
The vehicle was submerged near a dock.
There were no witnesses, Dowling said, and it’s unknown how long the vehicle has been in the water.
Division Chief Billy Floyd said crews were dispatched about 8:40 a.m.
The owner of the vehicle has been identified, Floyd said, and law enforcement is investigating to determine what happened.
Battalion Chief John Fowler with Horry County Fire Rescue told The Sun News his team assisted the city of North Myrtle Beach.
The incident is under investigation, Dowling said.
