Submerged concrete truck is retrieved from Bull Shoals Lake
An Ava Redi-Mix truck was pulled out of Bull Shoals Lake near Protem Friday at the end of Elbow Road. The Times was unable to learn how the vehicle ended up submerged in the water; calls were referred to Redi-Mix spokespersons who had not returned them by press time. Theodosia Hardware owner Justin Burnett said that, sometime later, Michael Williams came into the store “looking for a diver” who could attach tow lines to the submerged vehicle. Burnett, a recreational diver, agreed to help, but he told the Times he didn’t know how the truck, which is believed to have been carrying a load of concrete, ended up in the lake. He confirmed, though, that no one was injured in the incident.
