SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Chatham County Police Department closed part of Pine Meadow Road for hours Friday night while they investigated a submerged car in a body of water in the 1000 block.
Witnesses told police they saw a portion of the vehicle above water, but the vehicle is now completely submerged. The Savannah Fire Dive Team searched the vehicle and did not find a person inside or in surrounding water.
Just before 9:30 p.m. the car was recovered from the water. Police have determined the vehicle was stolen from the Twelve Oaks Shopping Center Friday afternoon.
Officers and the dive team suspended their search after they determined the vehicle was intentionally rolled into the water.
