GOLD HILL, Ore. (AP) — Nearly a year-and-a-half ago, a 36-year-old woman attempted suicide by driving into the Rogue River at Valley of the Rogue State Park.
The woman had second thoughts and escaped from the water.
But her Subaru Outback is still there and residents who live along the river wonder why.
Jackson County sheriff's officials say they initially had a tough time locating the car because of high water levels and currents that moved it downstream.
Now that the Subaru is visible, discussions between the woman's insurance company and park officials have delayed the removal process.
An insurance company spokesman told the Mail Tribune (http://is.gd/TlUgh1) that state parks officials wouldn't allow the towing company to haul the vehicle in Valley of the Rogue because of fears the car might damage the park's banks.
