(KMOV) – Two men are OK after the car they were in plunged into the Mississippi River on Tuesday.
The victims told authorities they were trying to turn around on Mullanphy Street near Commercial Street around 10:15 a.m. when their Smart car backed over an embankment and went into the Mississippi River.
The men were able to get out of the small car and rescue workers helped them up the bank of the river.
They were checked out at the scene, but only suffered bumps and bruises.
The car ended up up-side down in the river and appeared to be a total loss.
