floating four wheeler - navigational & boating hazard

10 August 2011

floating four wheeler An allegedly stolen vehicle has been dumped in a creek near Price on the York Peninsula.

The Toyota RAV4 was allegedly stolen and dumped in Mangrove Creek last week (4 August 2011).

Local police and the owner’s insurance company initially attempted to remove the vehicle.

After failing to retrieve it the car drifted into the middle of the waterway, about 200 metres from the boat ramp.

As the vehicle is a navigational hazard to all vessels in that area the department is working with the insurance company to remove it as soon as possible.
