A vehicle was found in the Shenandoah River yesterday morning near New Market.

The Ford Crown Victoria was discovered in the river at a point near River Road and Manor Hill Lane, west of the Shenandoah County town. Law enforcement responded to a call about the vehicle, which was discovered overturned in the water, at around 8:15 a.m. According to reports, authorities from the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police could be seen at the location of the wreck. It was extracted from the water with help from fire and rescue personnel.
