On Saturday divers were able to make physical contact with the truck and attached wires. Then this morning they were able to return and attach more wires to allow the truck to be raised out of the water.

The accident occured on March 26, and tow truck went over the guardrail into the river. It took several days to located the exact location of the truck.
