Barge Arrives To Recover Tow Truck From Sac River, Driver's Body Found

A barge equipped with a crane is being used in the effort to recover a tow truck which it plunged into the Sacramento River following a crash with a big rig on the Pioneer Bridge over two weeks ago. The barged arrived on scene Friday morning.

The couple who owned the towing company, Shalvinesh and Roselyn Sharma, were assumed to be inside the truck submerged in 30 to 40 feet of water. The California Highway Patrol confirms 40-year-old Shalvinesh Sharma's body was located yesterday morning south of Stan's Yolo Marina. Roselyn Sharma's body has not yet been recovered.

Strong currents have prevented dive teams from getting close to the truck, so far.

Global Diving and Salvage will handle the complex recovery effort, which the California Highway Patrol says could still take two or three days.
