SCHOFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A man's body was pulled Tuesday from an SUV that drove into the Eau Claire River in Schofield, just south of Wausau.
A bicyclist saw skid marks on an embankment and called 911.
Everest Metro Police said the victim was not positively identified at last word. Rescuers spent several hours pulling the submerged vehicle out, once they found it.
Everest Metro captain Clayton Schultz said crews could not tell right away if anyone was in the SUV, because the doors were locked and the water was murky.
Authorities are treating it as a traffic accident for now. Their investigation continues.
