Bodies recovered from submerged truck at Beauval, Sask.
- Bodies recovered from truck
RCMP have recovered two bodies from a truck that was submerged in the Beaver River.
Underwater recovery teams have been at the site since Sunday evening. Their work was difficult due to a strong current and poor visibility.
On Monday night RCMP provided a brief update on the effort noting they had removed the truck from the bottom of the river and the bodies inside had been recovered.
Two people were missing following earlier reports about erratic driving in the community.
On Saturday at around 7:15 a.m. CST, officers were told about a possible impaired driver speeding around the community with another passenger.
Officers searched for the two men and the vehicle, described as a silver Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
They noticed the bridge over the river just outside the community had wood debris and vehicle parts. The wooden guardrail next to the river had been smashed.
Underwater cameras showed a vehicle resembling a truck was under the water, which is more than six metres deep.
