"LOOK, A CAR IN THE RIVER...
... I THINK I WILL POKE AT IT"Elyria – Have you finished scratching your head yet wondering why the two men drove around the locked gates in Elywood Park and drove into the Black River? If so, get the finger ready to start scratching again.
Elyria Police were called to Elywood Park early Sunday evening after people in Cascade spotted, what they thought were kids, poking around the car in the river. Officers make the trek down the hill and spotted Jonathan Hicks of Amherst using a tree branch to fish items out of the car.
Hicks, who was accompanied by a woman and of course a small child, was able to fish a jacket out of the car but nothing else. Hicks said he spotted the car and wanted to make sure nobody was inside. He made no calls to the Police of Fire Department to report the sunken car however.
Officers questioned Hicks then sent him on his way. No charges were filed.
