After 19 Months, Car Pulled From Rogue River
A car stuck for 19 months in the Rogue River was pulled out by helicopter this morning. Waterway Recovery planned the work with a Sikorsky helicopter owned by Croman Corporation. In March of 2011, a woman drove her Subaru Outback into the river at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a suicide attempt. She survived the crash. The woman was rescued and was later convicted on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for her behavior that night. Her insurance company was responsible for the vehicle’s removal from the water. High water flows and concerns of damaging the river bank delayed recovery of the vehicle. The car is now property of her insurance company.
