WASHINGTON COUNTY, Okla. - Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating after a vehicle was discovered in Caney River near Highway 75 south of Bartlesville.

Troopers say an off-duty Osage County deputy was driving on Highway 75 when he saw a red Dodge truck upside down in the river Saturday morning.

Officials have confirmed a white woman was found dead in the vehicle, but her identity has not been released. Troopers say the truck fell about 40 to 50 feet before crashing into the river.
