Submerged Pickup Truck Extracted From Slough in Walnut Grove | Sacramento

Submerged Pickup Truck Extracted From Slough in Walnut Grove | Sacramento

Authorities were made aware of a submerged pickup truck in the Beaver Slough at Blossom Road, by a fisherman who spotted the vehicle's outline on his fishfinder.

The DART team and Central Valley Tow arrived at the site around 10:30 Friday morning and began working to extract the truck from the waterway.

The DART team had to make three dives; each time they connected to tow cable to the truck, pieces of the truck would pull apart due to deterioration.

Eventually, the tuck was successfully extracted from the slough. The vehicle was found to be unoccupied. It was determined that the vehicle had been in the slough for 21 years.

No one was injured during the operation.

Since You're Here

…we have a small favor to ask you. More people are viewing news from PSN than ever before. Despite our growing popularity, we are struggling to provide you coverage about what is going on in our community. Currently, PSN consists of a small, part-time team of volunteers who pay out of their own pocket to bring you news.

We have not put up a paywall because people have a right to know what’s going on in our community. We cannot survive on advertising alone because advertising rates are collapsing-threatening the existence of many local news outlets.

PSN’s unmatched coverage takes a lot of time, money, and hard work. But we do it because we want to serve our community and you deserve to know what’s really going on around you.

PSN obviously puts a lot of time and effort into bringing news, real news, to Sacramento. There’s no bias, no filter, no agenda; just events unfolding as you would see on scene. Anyone who is concerned about public safety should look to these guys first, it may not always be pleasant but it’s always reality. -Scott H.

If everyone who values our reporting helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support PSN and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
