The Franklin County Sheriff's Office is investigating the circumstances surrounding a truck found submerged last week off the Eastpoint boat ramp.

Deputies Larry Smith and Brice Carlson responded to the call, which came in on Wednesday, Dec. 28 around 9 a.m.

Sgt. Dwayne Coulter served as the diver, hooking up a winch to the vehicle, a 2005 black GMC four-door truck, which was pulled from the water by Shadetree Towing. 

The sheriff's office said the matter remains under investigation, and declined to release the name of the truck's owner.
