Mercedes-Benz Pulled From Creek

A late model Mercedes-Benz was discovered half-submerged in the waters of Newtown Creek on January 19. 

Firefighters responded at about 6:30 a.m. on January 19th to calls of the black car in the water, a fire spokesperson said.

Investigators believe the car jumped a barrier at the end of Maspeth Avenue, near the Kosciusko Bridge in Maspeth, and landed in the water, an FDNY spokesperson said.

The car, with New York license plates, was unoccupied. Its hood was partially submerged in the water, the fire spokesperson said.

Police are investigating to determine who owns the car, how it got into the water and who was driving the vehicle.
