Police Puzzled with Discovery of 2014 Nissan Altima Found Crashed in Red Arroyo
SAN ANGELO, TX — A car was reported stolen after it was found in the Red Arroyo early Sunday morning. How it got there has police puzzled.
San Angelo police were dispatched to the S. Chadbourne St. bridge over the Red Arroyo, approximately in the 2500 block, early Sunday morning at 8:06 a.m. to investigate why a 2014 Nissan Altima was laying upside down, partially submerged in the water below the bridge.
According to San Angelo Police Department Traffic Investigator Brian Bylsma, the incident is being investigated as a hit-and-run. Police could find no one around the car this morning. Shannon’s Airmed 1 helicopter was utilized to search for a crash victim in the thick brush around the Red Arroyo. So far, the police have come up empty. There are no known crash victims.
Bylsma said police contacted the registered owner of the car. She informed police the Nissan was supposed to be parked in front of her house. She said the car was stolen.
The location of the car when it was discovered:
According to Bylsma, the traffic investigation has revealed the car was traveling southbound on Chadbourne, hit the guardrail and fell down the embankment into the water. About half the car was lying in the Red Arroyo waterway before Home Motors retrieved it.
