Vehicle lands in New Fork River
June 18, 2018

On Sunday, June 17th 2018, at approximately 7:30pm, the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office received a call that a vehicle had driven off the road and went into the New Fork River on County Road 123 just south of Pinedale.

Sublette County Deputies, Wyoming Highway Patrol, Sublette County EMS and Sublette County Unified Fire responded to the scene where they found a white Ford pickup in the river. The driver’s door was left open, and no occupants were found in the vehicle. Shortly after finding the vehicle, a man walked towards the scene and was identified as the driver of the vehicle. Tip Top Search and Rescue’s swift water team assisted in downstream safety while the vehicle was towed from the high fast moving water. The driver was arrested on suspicion of Driving While Under the Influence, no Driver’s license, and failure to maintain a single lane of travel.
