TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Crews are working this week to pull submerged cars out of the Hudson River.
Nine cars were discovered and so far, six of those have been pulled out. They were discovered in preparation for work on the Troy seawall, a sonar crew discovered the vehicles on the bottom of the river.
State Police say two of the four that have been recovered were reported stolen. They are still working to research the history of the other two.
“We don’t know the circumstance of these vehicles, that’s why we’re here to check out the cars, remove them, or even match them in a missing persons case,” said Timothy Hard, Troop G Senior Driving Officer.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is assisting State Police to recover the cars.
There is no exact date when the job will be done.
