The Bonneville County Sheriff's Department's dive team located the vehicle at 8:45 pm and removed it with a tow truck on Milligan Road.

Dean Martin was camping at South Tourist Park when the car drove into the river.

"Just heard somebody screaming for help, at first I thought it was a kid," said Martin "Then you could tell it was trouble, so I dialed 911 immediately and went to go find where the noise came from."
