Oklahoma City fire rescue crews extracted a truck from the Oklahoma River after a witness reported it rolling down a boat ramp and into the water.

About noon Thursday, firefighters were called to the Byers Avenue Bridge, near SE 6 and S Lincoln Boulevard, close to the Devon Boathouse. They found the truck about 30 minutes later somewhere between 50 and 75 feet from the river bank. Dive teams helped as a wrecker pulled it from the water, fire Maj. Tammy McKinney said.

No one was inside the truck, McKinney said. A spokeswoman at the boathouse declined to comment.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
