Dumped stolen car discovered downstream of Ancil Hoffman Park

A stolen car apparently was recently driven into the American River near Ancil Hoffman Park earlier this month, officials reported.

Once it was in the water, park rangers think it was swept downstream about a mile by abnormally high summer river flows.

Sacramento County Park Ranger John Havicon said the car was stolen from an owner in Gold River. The vehicle was then apparently driven into the river at the Rossmoor Bar boat ramp.

It floated downstream when the river was roaring to a point where Rancho Cordova is on one side of the river and Ancil Hoffman Park on the other. Havicon said the car was spotted in the river around July 1.
