DPS Dive Team Pulls Truck From Rio Grande River
SOUTH OF PALMVIEW - The silver truck has been submerged in the Rio Grande River since Wednesday, December 5th. After a pursuit with U.S. Marshals and Palmview police, a man drove the truck into the river and then swam across to Mexico.
Police are not sure why the man ran from authorities. They hope to uncover those answers inside the water soaked truck. On initial glance, no weapons and narcotics were found inside.
The truck was removed from the river with the help of the DPS dive team.
