Police remove submerged car from beach on Rogers Street

Sep 4, 2018

Clarks Cove is home to plenty of marine life, but Dartmouth emergency crews found something that didn’t quite belong on September 4: A 2012 Ford Focus. 

The discovery was made at 6 a.m. on September 4, after police and other emergency crews responded to a report of a car partially submerged in the waters off of Rogers Street. 

A dive team from the Southeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council was called in and Dartmouth Fire District No. 1 also responded. The car was found to be unoccupied. 

The car was removed by Big Wheels Towing and West End Towing.

The car was registered to a 63-year-old New Bedford man. Keys were discovered in the ignition and a rock was found on the gas pedal. 

Dartmouth Police are currently investigating the incident.
