Vehicle submerged, Cairns Inlet
Cairns police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a submerged maroon sedan near the public boat ramp at Smiths Creek, Portsmith. Around 7.30 last night witnesses reported seeing the vehicle hit the water at speed with the headlights on and the engine still running. It was reported that the vehicle floated 15 meters down the creek before slowly submerging in approximately three meters of water. It’s believed no-one was in the vehicle at the time. The boat ramp remains closed while police continue to guard the scene until the police dive squad inspects the vehicle, before it is retrieved at low tide later today.
