KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Fire Department was on the scene of a water rescue early Tuesday morning.
Firefighters say just after 3:30 a.m., an SUV went into Brush Creek after going off the road, over the stone wall and dropped more than 15 feet into the creek.
“We responded to a rescue into the water, search the vehicle to make sure there was no victims inside, which there wasn’t. ” Kansas City Battalion Chief Bruno told FOX 4. “At that time we search the banks also. Didn’t find any victims.”
Witnesses say they saw a driver leave the vehicle and into another vehicle.
“After that, we assisted the tow trucks in setting up the straps and pull in the vehicle out of the water, and then doing a search to make sure no one was trapped inside,” Battalion Chief Bruno said.
No one else was found in the SUV.
Police told FOX 4 that when they ran the vehicle’s plates, it did not appear to be stolen.
