MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Police in Mandan say a 22-year-old man accused of driving under the influence has been arrested after he drove his truck into the Missouri River.

KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/1oPGYZY ) reports police responded to the scene after receiving a report of a loud crash near a Mandan bar that overlooks the river. The caller reported seeing people swimming in the bay and a possible boating accident. Officers found three men walking away from the scene.

Police say the driver missed a turn and drove the truck airborne into Borden Harbor. Two passengers were in the Ford F-350.

The three men suffered minor injuries.

The truck is still submerged and a Morton County dive team will attempt to pull it out Wednesday night.
