Empty car plunges into SF waters

A vehicle was found submerged in waters near Candlestick Point in San Francisco this evening with apparently no one inside, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP reported at 5:57 p.m. that a vehicle went over an embankment on northbound U.S. Highway 101 and plunged into the water about a quarter mile south of Candlestick Point.

The CHP said officers responded to the scene and found the vehicle about 20 yards from the roadway with nobody inside.

A tow truck was called to the scene to remove the vehicle from the water.

The incident is currently under investigation.
