Car Fished Out Of Oakland Estuary

OAKLAND (CBS SF) – Emergency crews have pulled a car out of the Oakland Estuary Thursday morning following reports of a vehicle in the water, according to the fire department.

A passerby reported seeing a car in the estuary, near Jack London Aquatic Center at 115 Embarcadero West at around 2:30 a.m., fire Battalion Chief Emon Usher said.

The witness reportedly responded to the site and found the vehicle had gone underwater, Usher said.

Responding crews said they saw something under the water’s surface but could not tell what it was, according to Usher.

The car was pulled out of the water just before 9 a.m.  There was no one inside the vehicle, according to police.
