Crews pull car from Mon River 24 hours after it rolled in

NEW EAGLE, Pa. — Crews removed a car from the Monongahela River Monday, nearly 48 hours after it rolled in.

Channel 11 has learned a teenage driver had taken his parents' car to meet a friend Saturday night. He said he put the car in park, but then when he got out he heard a loud noise and the car began rolling backward.

Surveillance video from a nearby home showed the teen chasing the car, while his friends apparently pulled out their phones to record what was happening.

The car ended up completely submerged about 100 feet from shore. Initially attempts to remove the car were unsuccessful, but Monday afternoon crews brought in a heavy-duty tow truck and were able to get the car out of the water.
