MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) - Divers have recovered the body of a motorist whose pickup went into the Willamette River at the Oak Grove boat ramp.

A spokesman for Clackamas Fire District #1 says a fisherman told crews he heard the vehicle go into the water Friday morning. Divers found the vehicle more than 25 feet below the surface, and the motorist’s body was recovered 45 minutes later.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is trying to determine why it happened.

The driver’s name has not been released.
