YAKIMA, Wash. (KIMA) — Emergency crews responded Tuesday to an SUV that drivers spotted submerged in the Yakima River, but the driver claims he did it intentionally, according to the Yakima County Sheriff's Office.

At about 11 a.m., callers said they saw the blue Chevrolet Suburban in the water of the Yakima River.

Sheriffs deputies responded and found the vehicle in the water and the owner nearby.

According to police, the owner of the vehicle told them he had replaced the thermostat in the vehicle and needed to fill the radiator with water.

Deputies say the driver told them he intentionally drove the SUV into the water so that he could get water into the radiator.

The vehicle was towed out of the river.                                                                                                                              SEE PICTURES    https://wjactv.com/news/offbeat/man-sinks-suv-in-river-to-fill-up-radiator-with-water
