Officials: Car found submerged in Passaic River
Paterson officials say a submerged car was found by a person walking by the Passaic River on Thursday.
Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh told News 12 first responders immediately did a search and found no one inside.
Officials determined that the car was stolen.
Sayegh added there's reason to believe the thieves purposely left the car where they did because the water was higher than usual after last week's flooding.
