ELK CITY, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma troopers say a Camaro recovered from a lake last week that's connected to the 1970 disappearance of three teens shows signs of an accident.
The car and another one missing since 1969 were recovered after troopers testing sonar equipment detected them near a boat ramp at Foss Lake. Police believe they have solved two missing-persons cases involving six people.
Trooper George Hoyle told the Daily Elk Citian newspaper that the Camaro was running when it hit the water. He said the driver was driving "a little faster than he should have." He says the impact damaged the radiator fan, a motor mount and the fuel pump.
Hoyle says the evidence suggests foul play was not involved and that the driver may have been unfamiliar with his surroundings.
