Car In Arkansas

Driving home from Gunny on Sunday there was a car that had rolled into the Ark about 1 mile above Pinnacle Launch site. Don't know any particulars about the accident, seemed to be a bad deal though. Be heads up if on the river or road. Hope all turned out ok for those involved. Any info about the situation?

We were running the Ark from Texas Creek to Salt Lick on Sunday...between Maytag and Three Forks we started seeing lots of emergency personnel. Then we started to see traffic backed up...halfway through Three Forks rapid there was a Freemont County Sheriff on the right bank blowing a whistle and signaling us to move to river left. When we came around the next corner there was a car upside down near the right bank, with just 2 tires sticking up out of the water. There was an extensive rescue operation going on. When we got down to Three Rocks a flight for life helicopter came in low and turned around to land at Pinnacle Rock. Word is, emergency services used floats to raise the car and pull the driver out...

Sorry, I didn't see this thread before responding:
