A vehicle, with possibly more than one person inside, careened into the Detroit River at about 8:45 p.m. Monday near Bishop Park. Police do not believe anyone survived the crash.
Members of the Wayne County Underwater Search and Recovery Team are on site, searching the water for the motorists. The Coast Guard also has vessels searching the water. The vessels were circling an area at about 11 p.m. where they believe the truck is, officials said. Members of the Coast Guard are using sonar technology to locate the vehicle.
Wyandotte and Grosse Ile police and fire also are on the scene. A stretcher is already up and assembled, ready to transport anyone as soon as they're pulled from the river.
Doris Michael, the owner of the former Why Not Costumes, said she saw the driver of a red pickup truck throw a beer bottle, accelerate behind Edible Arrangements, crash through the guard rail near the Detroit River and crash into the water at a high rate of speed.
Wyandotte Fire Chief Jeffrey Carley said witnesses told firefighters that there could have been up to three people in the truck when it went into the river. Their genders are unknown, but Carley said witnesses said the driver had long hair. At this time, Carley said, no one has yet been rescued from the river.
