VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Divers searching the waters near Vicksburg’s City Front have located the body of a man reportedly dragged into the Yazoo Diversion Canal after his truck’s brakes failed.

The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1Co4wyR ) reports Warren County Sheriff’s Department, Vicksburg Fire Department and Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries boats assisted in the search for the man who, a witness said, was clinging onto the truck before it went under the water.

Police Chief Walter Armstrong says the witness reported the man was outside the truck and yelled that the brakes had failed.

There is no information on the make or model of the truck submerged or the victim’s identity.
