POINTE COUPEE PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – The Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s Office and Pointe Coupee Fire District 4 were both asked to respond to the False River early Tuesday morning.
Around 4:20 a.m., a call came in about a vehicle that had made its way into the river.
PCPSO says the woman who was driving the vehicle got out to check on a noise. The woman says the noise was coming from her vehicle and she thought the vehicle was in park when she got out.
Evidently it was not as the vehicle made a slow roll into the river with the woman unable to jump in and hit the breaks.
The woman was not hurt during this incident.
