UPDATE: KARE 11 is reporting that multiple dive teams are searching the river.
I can not, for the life of me, figure out where the reporter above is standing! If she's "right next to the lock and dam" there is quite a lot of lower structure the driver would have had to get through before plunging into the river. Is this a real incident?
UPDATE: A man is dead after a car went into the Mississippi River near downtown Minneapolis Monday night. Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek said Minneapolis police received a call of an erratic driver on West River Parkway around 9:20 p.m. The car veered off road and Minneapolis Park Police Agents saw it go down an embankment into the river, according to Sheriff Stanek. The car went through a fence before it ended up in the water near Mill Ruins Park, just before the lock and dam. Read the full story: http://kstp.mn/6loc4
Ahha! I finally figured out the exact location where the car entered the river.
