HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Crews removed a submerged vehicle in Little River Wednesday morning.

According to a post on Horry County Fire Rescue’s Facebook page, the vehicle was found in a pond near Switchgrass Loop.

The vehicle appears to be a black Ford F-150.

At 7:45 a.m., Horry County Fire Rescue crews from Stations 2 (Little River) and 18 (Stephens Crossroads) were dispatched by Horry County 911 to a retaining pond near Switchgrass Loop for a call of a submerged vehicle. After verifying no one was in the vehicle, a member of our Dive Team hooked a line to the back of the vehicle so it could be towed out. Thanks to South Carolina Department of Public Safety for assistance on this. #HCFR #TeamHorry
