Car Rolls into the Red River in Moorhead
On 9/19/19 at approximately 5:48 pm the Moorhead Police Department and Moorhead Fire Department were dispatched to the Red River North Dam (700 block 15th Avenue North) for a report of an unoccupied car that had rolled into the river. Officers on scene were able to see the vehicle floating in the river for several minutes before it submerged. The Moorhead Fire Department along with the Fargo Fire Department searched the river but were unable to locate the car.
During the investigation it was determined that the driver of the vehicle had been distracted by a pet shortly after arriving and exited the vehicle without putting it into park.
