Law enforcement officials recovered an SUV that was submerged in Oologah Lake on Sunday afternoon.

Divers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Marine Enforcement Division recovered a 2012 Kia Soul in approximately 7 feet of water.

Witnesses told investigators they saw the vehicle travel off the roadway and into the water earlier on Sunday. According to those witnesses, the driver allegedly swam out of the vehicle and was picked up by another driver. There were no injuries reported.

Investigators believe the vehicle was intentionally disposed of in the lake. They have not identified the owner of the vehicle at this time.
