    A car was found submerged in the Trinity River Tuesday morning.

    According to Dallas Fire-Rescue, at about 8:30 a.m. they were called to the 2300 block of Sandy Lake Road by the Carrollton Fire Department after they were called to investigate a set of tire tracks leading into the water.

    Officials were not able to verify a car was under water from the surface, so a dive team from the Lewisville Fire Department was called into investigate further.

    The dive team was able to determine a car was in the water and that no one was believed to be inside the vehicle.

    A tow truck was called and by 11:30 a.m. the car had been pulled from the water.  At that time, officials were able to confirm that no one was inside the vehicle.

    It was unclear how the car got into the creek and investigators are working to determine who owns the vehicle, later revealed to be a PT Cruiser.
