Vehicle Found in Pee Dee River, Driver Found Alive and Rushed to Hospital Harold Dawkins

ROCKINGHAM -- Richmond Observer accident reporter/photographer Harold Dawkins rushed to the scene Friday of a vehicle that had run off a boat ramp into the Pee Dee River. The incident occurred at the Pee Dee River boat landing located at the bridge on Highway 74.

The vehicle did have an occupant inside, and the driver had sustained what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The occupant was removed from the vehicle by an individual who was at the boat landing, and First Health Richmond EMS transported the driver to the hospital. The Richmond County Sheriff's Office is continuing its investigation of the incident.
