Car found on Souris River embankment

MINOT, N.D. - Police, fire and rescue crews spent late last night investigating a car found on an embankment of the Souris River in northwest Minot.

Investigators found the car on the riverbank near the intersection of 16th Street and 4th Avenue northwest near Oak Park.

It appears the car was headed southbound on 16th Street, left the roadway, and went partially down the bank of the river.

It's unclear if anyone was in the car.

A tow truck arrived on scene shortly after midnight to pull the car out.
