Has that been rolled in the river, or had an engine fire, or both?!?

Must have been a strong curent.....even sucked the blinkers out of the bullbar. Looks like a setup to me. Must have been a strong current to suck the hood off also.

Could be wrong

Neil, anyone who has been around will have seen that sort of damage before...hopefully they got out Ok.
Details aren't that important, you've just reminded us of the perils of water crossings. Thanks.
On a lighter note, I was waiting for the tide to go down in the Bloomfield years ago. I was always wary of salties there. A guy swam across from the other side to tell me that it was shallow enough for me to cross ! He pointed to about a foot of steel hanging out of the river, he'd crossed at the wrong time.
I elected to finish morning tea and watching someone else cross before I did. And even then my better half was not happy.

Neil, I know that Archer River crossing slightly. And thats as familiar as I'd like to get with it !
I thought that the Bloomfield had a different crossing now ? Sounds like the one I know too well...the only time I re started a diesel engine in the middle....and got away with it. Saw the rising tide, and the croc sign, had the family with me...so I figured it was worth a try.

This vehicle was washed off the casueway- I can't remember the date, but at the height of the flooding on the cape a few weeks ago. It would have been in the water a fair while.

Footy- the Bloomfield does have a new causeway, which take all the fun out of crossing it unless it is flowing fast and deep.

You mean the car was driving across at 1.2 on easter saturday and has been sitting there through a 13m rise in the water and also the bonnet was left up and got ripped of.
