Deputies: SUV stuck in Yakima River was stolen

YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Deputies said the SUV floating in the Yakima River near Wapato was stolen and either driven or pushed into the water.

The car was first spotted Tuesday just upstream from Century Landing.

Rising river levels make it too dangerous to recover the vehicle right now, deputies said. It might take several weeks before it's safe to enter.

The owner of the SUV has been notified about the situation.
