TUKWILA, Wash. — Police are investigating after a body was found in a car submerged in the Duwamish River.
On Sunday night, a person reported hearing a car crash in the 12800 block of 48th Avenue South.
When officers arrived, they found a barrier that separates the road from the Green River Trail and Duwamish River damaged.
Due to darkness and the weather conditions, officers couldn’t see over the river embankment whether a car went into the water.
On Monday, crews and several agencies responded to the area to help in the search.
When Tukwila officers located the car, they found a man’s body inside.
