Police remove submerged car from beach on Rogers Street
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.
