River car case closed

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I just wanted to finish up the story of “Car in river.”

I want to let the community know that I appreciate the prayers and good thoughts. Through the investigation, the [insurance] investigator found a recall on certain Ford vehicles, and my car was one that fell into that category. According to the investigator, from the recall, the vehicle could possibly jump or slip out of park.

The vehicle was retrieved and the shifter was in the park position. Since there was a vehicle that pulled in and out of the area, the manufacturer will not cover the incident, so the insurance company declared a total loss and is covering the incident.

The investigation is finally over, but the repercussions are still seen and felt. Again, thanks for all of those who supported me.
